This would not be different from any other unofficial version, you are 
free to do so but have to make sure it qualifies as a full package 
(including docs and sample scenes) and clearly indicate the unofficial 
nature.

You can be sure the POV-Team recognizes when you post a link but you 
should note that there will not be support for an unofficial version by 
the Team.  I also think most current linux distributions already include 
POV-Ray 3.5.
