Have you tried this script?

You'll have to adjust it for your system of course but on opensuse it runs like a

# filename install_povray.sh

# install script for Povray 3.7 master
# this script must be run by root

# First we need to install a bunch of libs that make
# life a whole lot easier when using/compiling Povray

zypper in -l -y automake
zypper in -l -y autoconf
zypper in -l -y boost-devel
zypper in -l -y make
zypper in -l -y gcc
zypper in -l -y gcc-c++
zypper in -l -y libjpeg8-devel
zypper in -l -y openexr-devel
zypper in -l -y openexr
zypper in -l -y libpng12-devel
zypper in -l -y libtiff-devel
zypper in -l -y libSDL-devel
zypper in -l -y libSDL2-devel
zypper in -l -y libXpm-devel
zypper in -l -y libXpm-tools
zypper in -l -y libICE-devel
zypper in -l -y libSM-devel

#prepair for unix (linux) compilation
cd /home/ger/Downloads/povray-master/unix/

# and run the prebuild script

# run configure with the appropriate options
cd /home/ger/Downloads/povray-master
./configure COMPILED_BY="Pietje Puk <p.p### [at] gmailcom>"
--with-boost-thread=boost_thread-mt LIBS="-lboost_system -lboost_thread"

# and now for the heavy lifting part . . .
# Make and install povray

make clean  
make install

# all done
