out of interest, without gui, what are the differences to "stock" povray?

btw, installed Qt5 but hit another snag with the qtpovray build.  apparently,
(q)make does not pick up the QT5DIR environment variable.  when make enters the
'qt/gui' directory, compilation fails with "does not name a type" error(s); it's
not using the qt5 include files (in four of the -I switches).
