Hi I'm currently facing issues when compiling POV-Ray for Centos 5.10.

The issue is that I have issues linking with the boost library.

I have downloaded boost 1.41 in bz2 form seeing how there were issues with the
1.50 version of the libraries. Then I proceeded to only install the thread
libraries.

However, there were issues with linking the boost thread libraries. Below is the
output from the failed ./configure execution.
