Hallo Christoph !

1.) Problem:
Build povunix-v3.8.9-beta.668.tar.gz Compiler clang-x:
Optimized Noise-Functions not compiled !
Clang defines __clang__ Not __GNUC__

Solution :
File :  unix/povconfig/syspovconfig.h

Z 169ff:  #if defined (__clang__)
             #define HAVE_ASM_AVX
             #define HAVE_ASM_AVX2
             #define HAVE_ASM_FMA3
             #define HAVE_ASM_FMA4

Z. 179: // most notably platform-specific optimized implementations.
         #if defined (__GNUC__) || defined(__clang__)

2.) Problem Optimized Noise-Function Compiler: gcc-10
Povray-Output :
Dynamic optimizations:
   CPU detected: AMD,SSE2,AVX,AVX2,FMA3
   Noise generator: avx-generic (compiler-optimized)

CPU: AMD Ryzen 2700
cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep avx :  se4_1 sse4_2 movbe popcnt aes xsave avx ..

So it should work with Intels implementation, but there is an vendor 
check in :



bool CPUInfo::IsIntel()
  return gpData->cpuidInfo.vendorId == kCPUVendor_Intel|| kCPUVendor_AMD;

I activated  CHECK_FUNCTIONAL in the optimized functions. No exception
arises. So I think it's ok.
