Apparently, I updated this box from ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04 last year,
(since I last ran my renderfarm) and my homebuilt povray371 dies. (I'm
ok with that)
$ git clone https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray.git
$ git checkout release/v3.7.1
$ cd unix ; ./prebuild.sh ; cd ..
$ ./configure BY="me"
checking whether to use the PNG library... yes
checking for library containing png_get_libpng_ver... no
configure: error: cannot find a suitable PNG library
No -lpng ? How odd.
Google says I want libpng12, which is what I have.
dig dig dig.
sudo apt-get install libpng-dev
sudo apt-get install libjpeg-dev
sudo apt-get install libtiff-dev
Wait. I saw a list somewhere someone had put together of these. Boy that
would be helpful now.
and we're on our way
