I’ve been trying to upgrade povray 3.6.1 to 3.7-beta-32. I’ve configured with no additional arguments, and the configure dies with:
checking whether to build the boost thread library from sources... no
I figured that the problem was with my boost installation (1.35) and upgraded boost to 1.39; the problem remains. I tried to see if exit was defined in libboost_thread and/or libboost_thread-boost_thread and it isn’t. Just to be sure that my currrent setup works for the released version, I rebuilt/reninstalled 3.6.1, which went without problem.
I’m on a slackware-12.2 box, using gcc-4.4.0.
