regarding 'unix/icons/*.png'.  I think they could be installed under
'/usr/share/icons/', perhaps '/usr/share/icons/POV_Ray/'?  would require
organising them by size, and renaming, to accommodate the existing conventions.
benefit: would be available in "desktop environments" (Gnome/KDE/etc).

the 'install' and 'README.*' weren't included in the 'povunix' tarball.  the
'*.x?m' files could go under '/usr/share/pixmaps/', I suggest.

(either '/usr/share/' or '/usr/local/share/' would do.)


regards, jr.
