Well, that problem has been fixed (Thank you!). And now I'm onto what I think is
the last error before this thing actually *works*. It's the same problem as
found here

But it seems they never came across a way to fix this issue (at least that was
put there). I tried playing with path names, as that was the key to fixing a few
other issues for me, but to no avail.

Commands I used -
../configure COMPILED_BY="etcetc etc"
Flags I tried with said command- --sysconfdir=/etc

This is the head part of the rendering portion of my "make -dw check" -

Must remake target `check'.
../unix/povray +i./distribution/scenes/advanced/biscuit.pov -f +d +p +v +w320
+h240 +a0.3 +L./include

and the last bit of my "sudo make install" attempt -
