Probably. I gave it a whirl with qtpovray, way back when, and what is in my
history is this:
sudo apt install git qt5-qmake qt5-default libboost-dev libboost-date-time-dev
libboost-thread-dev libz-dev libpng-dev libjpeg-dev libtiff-dev libopenexr-dev
git clone https://github.com/dickbalaska/qtpovray.git && git checkout qtpovray
&& qmake && make -j4
But then I think Dick Balaska whacked me upside the head and said "Listen, it's
as simple as:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:qtpovray/qtpovray
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

At the outset of _this_ installation thread, I went looking around, and found
sudo apt-get install povray
actually worked :O Which is lovely, because it can hardly get any easier than
that, excepting buying it pre-installed on the laptop.
So, I'm guessing that's an already compiled binary?
Thanks again for your review and commentary - always appreciated.
