I see, thank you very much.

The thing of it is, POV UNIX works fine for me. I was just a little ...
shocked ... that this "usr" folder was hideen from me in Mac OSX. Now I
discover one can actually see the "usr" directory in the Mac "Finder," if
one uses menu "Go," and chooses "To Folder."

If I had know it was already there, my install of UNIX POV would have been,
well, smoother.

Thanks to all for good advice.

POV is wonderful. So many people have worked so hard to make it what it is.
It makes quite a story.
