I just wanted to drop a quick note to users who might want to use povray 3.6.1
on Intel Macs, etc.
Yes, it is possible to modify config files and compile directly from the unix
sources, as posted here, but I've found a better way is to use Homebrew:
Homebrew is a package manager for OSX. Basically you just install homebrew by
pasting this into a command prompt:
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/gist/323731)"
And then at the prompt type
brew install povray
That's it! No messing about with config files or doing anything funky.
I'm happy to have found this because I was having some serious problems with
Apple's new LLVM version of GCC -- it wasn't compiling povray correctly and the
program was behaving bizarrely. Homebrew fixed the problem.
