Please find attached my initial attempt at a Unix/Linux tarball for the 
povr branch of POV-Ray.

It will unpack into a directory called povray2 due my own development 
naming. Supposing you unpack into /tmp/povray2 , it should be you can cd 
into that directory and do something like:

./configure COMPILED_BY="wfp" --prefix=/tmp/povr
make check

make install

The install size is 4-5MB. There is a script called povr in the root 
directory. After a little editing, it can be used to run the compile 'in 
place' or from an 'installed' compile result. Copy povr to your bin 
directory or otherwise get it into your $PATH. After which, unix help: 
povr --help

There are a couple of scenes in the scenes directory which should run 
with 'povr fog.pov', say, once you have the povr script set up. A 
reminder povr, often as not, breaks compatibility with existing POV-Ray 

A work in progress, but it's getting there. At this point I'm mostly 
interested in whether others can get through 'make check' OK given the 
necessary development libraries are installed local to your machine (see
