Yes, I will try to install povray 3.8.0, why not...
I gathered informations with an old file I kept, named 'config.log' that
contains among others, differents variables/values a user can change before
compile time especially when inputing './configure' at the prompt/terminal.

Until someone will tell me I'm wrong , I think that the variables used to name
the final binary are 'PACKAGE' or/and 'PACKAGE_TARNAME' (they both contain
'povray' )but I'm not sure.
If you can give me some advice about that, I'll be glad. :-D

I discovered POVRay in 1997 in a magazine that came with a CD-Rom (that was the
2 second version under MS-DOS: v2.x) All I had as a CPU was an Intel 486 SX2
(yes, without a mathematic coprocessor :-( ). For a scene equivalent to the one
above with the conic_sweep, the render took about 6 hours, I quickly gave up
making scenes (I didn't use editor with the Scene description language, but a
software with iron wire interface with 4 windows named 'POVSB' (under windows
3.1) or something like this. I began learning the SDL later in 2007 until now.
Nostalgia... :-D
