I/O restrictions

To allow POV-Ray reading and writing you need to create a .povray.conf file.
To allow everything you can download this file and put it into your home directory.

Compiling with gcc 3.1

The current linux source distribution will not compile with gcc 3.1 unless you add
using std::min;
using std::max;
into src/config.h below #include <algorithm>.

compiler options

For the gcc binaries I have used:

CXXFLAGS = -Wno-multichar -O3 -ffast-math -march=pentium3 -mcpu=pentium3 -foptimize-sibling-calls -funroll-loops -malign-double -minline-all-stringops -fomit-frame-pointer -fbranch-probabilities

-fbranch-probabilities will only work if you have compiled a version with -fprofile-arcs before and made some runs with it.
