  Making the Leap: Compiling POV for the first time

Well, I decided to see if I could compile POV myself.  This was instituted
by two things:

1. A really slow scene that I'd like to get faster
2. Getting linux up and running on my home system.

Now, I know the linux version is available, and what's more, it compiles
fine on my system right out of the box with gcc, but I have access to the
KAI C++ compiler through my work and I thought I'd try it and see which was
faster.  I've been very impressed with KAI in the past, so I thought I'd see
what kind of results I could get.

Unfortunately, Kai doesn't compile the code correctly.  I'm getting errors
that it doesn't find the Frame global variable in atmos.c, the first .c file
to be compiled.  That's an extern out of povray.h, which is included in
atmos.c, so I don't know why it's not finding it.  Does anyone have any
ideas why this might be going weird on me?

Thanks for any help,
