thanks.  compiles.  will properly make + install sometime later this week.

one thing I noticed, 'povr' links against an older version of libpng, unlike the
"stock" POV-Ray.

jr@swift:13:~$ ldd /usr/local/bin/povray-3.8.0-alpha.10064268
    libpng16.so.16 => /usr/lib64/libpng16.so.16 (0x00007f6cc19c5000)
jr@swift:14:~$ ldd POVr/bin/povray2
    libpng12.so.0 => /usr/lib64/libpng12.so.0 (0x00007fb50195f000)

the updated version too links to 1.2.50, when 1.6.37 is available.

(crestfallen..)  hope 'a_' will be as acceptable as '_a'.
