Hello

I am trying to install PovRay on Ubuntu 14.04.

I think I have followed the guideline given in this newsgroups. But it still
doesn't work.

I've checked that all dependencies are updated.
libboost-dev
zlib1g-dev
libpng12-dev
libjpeg8-dev
libtiff5-dev
libopenexr-dev

I followed the instructions given in github
% cd unix/
% ./prebuild.sh
% cd ../
% ./configure COMPILED_BY="your name <email@address>"
% make

but the 'make' doesn't work


sudo ./configure COMPILED_BY="FredDM<dae### [at] bluewinch>"

leads to this error with the boost thread library

configure: error: in `/home/fred/Programmation/PovRay/povray-3.7-stable':
configure: error: cannot link with the boost thread library

It is a known error, but the solution provided

sudo ./configure COMPILED_BY="FredDM<>" LIBS="-lboost_system -lboost_thread"

leads to a new error

Programs
--------
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler works... no
configure: error: in `/home/fred/Programmation/PovRay/povray-3.7-stable':
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables

I have checked gcc

fred@Flat-Ubu:~/Programmation/PovRay/povray-3.7-stable$ gcc --version
gcc (Ubuntu 4.8.4-2ubuntu1~14.04.1) 4.8.4

If anyone can give me a clue, I would be very glad.

Thanks in advance

Fred
