The rendering of POV-Ray synthesis images are done in "real-time". It
depends on past data, and future parameters are unknown. I have a
POV-Ray script from which I substitute series of float numbers, that
produces 2000 different scenes, one after the other.

I can't launch POV-Ray one time, to produce 2000 images. I must launch
it 2000 times, to render 2000 images. The issue is that Macports
POV-Ray binary, changes the menu bar, and displays an icon in the dock.

The question is how to configure POV-Ray with the command-line, so that
it is quiet ? I think I'll have to build POV-Ray binary myself, from
Unix/Linux sources using `./configure; make; make install` it's simple !

Thanks for your help.
