On Windows, the solution should be even more embarrassingly simple:

- The `ior.inc` for POV-Ray 3.7.0 should be residing in
`%USERPROFILE%\Documents\POV-Ray\v3.7\include`, and that's where POV-Ray
3.7.0 should be looking for it.

- The `ior.inc` for POV-Ray 3.7.1-beta should be residing in
`%USERPROFILE%\Documents\POV-Ray\v3.7-beta\include`, and that's where
POV-Ray 3.7.1-beta should be looking for it.

If that's not the case, let us know.

(Your solution /may/ come in handy later during release candidate phase
or after release, in case someone wants to keep the old 3.7.0 binaries
around, as 3.7.1 will then switch from `v3.7-beta` to `v3.7`.)


On Unix, you can run the `configure` script with the `--prefix=`
parameter to have `make install` install the beta to a different
location, which I /think/ should also solve the issue.
