I say this every time someone posts this problem: use MegaPOV until the
situation is resolved one way or another. That's what I do. It's based on POV
3.6.1, uses all the same includes etc, and is a universal binary, equally happy
on either architecture. True, the editor is a little different, but you get used
to it.

Maybe not the ideal solution, but better than switching computers all the time,
or (perish the thought) giving up on POV-Ray entirely... :-)
