downloaded the 'povunix' as recommended, was surprised the archive unpacks in
the cwd rather than in a sub-directory.  that said, and one warning (cf
'core/render/trace.cpp') aside, building and install went ok (i5, Slackware
14.2).

(in which scenario is building from "Source code (tar.gz)" still preferred?)
