I should be equivalent to povray-3.8.0-alpha-something. My last merge 
was from the release/v3.8.0 branch on 2017-12-02.
povray on unix is built with autoconf/make/g++.
qtpovray on unix is built with qmake/make/g++.
If I did my job well, it will run exactly the same.

$ qmake -qt=qt5 -r
$ export QT_SELECT=qt5
$ qmake -r


BTW, I am running two VMs for testing right now, Ubuntu 16 and Ubuntu 
18.  I've thought about spinning up a Slackware 14.1 because of you. :)
