Supposing you compiled yourself, my guess is you have no 'compatible'
Simple Directmedia Layer development library installed. POV-Ray will
compile cleanly without a preview window capability.
The official v3.7 and v3.8 versions use the much older SDL1.2 libraries
and not the current SDL2.0 ones.
As a quick check for SDL1.2 issue the command:
(The command is 'sdl2-config --version' for SDL2.0+)
