I have tried to compile the latest version 3.8.0.9861167 alpha and as in 
the official version that I compiled I still have the problem that it 
does not show the image while it is generated. While compiling it shows 
the following message,

Built-in features:
   I/O restrictions:          enabled
   X Window display:          disabled
   Supported image formats:   gif tga iff ppm pgm hdr png jpeg tiff
   Unsupported image formats: openexr

Compilation settings:
   Build architecture:  x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
   Built/Optimized for: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu (using -march=native)
   Compiler vendor:     gnu
   Compiler version:    g++ 7
   Compiler flags:      -pipe -Wno-multichar -Wno-write-strings 
-fno-enforce-eh-specs -Wno-non-template-friend -s -O3 -ffast-math 
-march=native -pthread
   Libraries:           -ltiff -ljpeg -lpng -lz -lrt -lm -lboost_thread 
-pthread  -lboost_system



Note that in the Built-in features the X Windows display is disabled.

I have followed the detailed instructions in
https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray/blob/master/unix/README.md
and I think that the dependencies listed do not include the necessary X 
server or XCygwin or X11 or XDisplay or whatever it is called.

Can someone tell me what is needed to complete the installation?

Thank you very much
B. Gimeno
