425. Briefly: Megapov

I want to use glow in a pov, and because of the number of objects it might be easier to use megapov than to add extra objects for each glowing one.

sudo mkdir /opt/megapov
sudo chown $USER:$USER /opt/megapov
wget http://megapov.inetart.net/packages/unix/megapov-1.2.1.tgz
tar xvf megapov-1.2.1.tgz
cd megapov-1.2.1/
./configure --prefix=/opt/megapov COMPILED_BY="me@here"
make install
cp /usr/share/povray/include/* /opt/megapov/share/megapov-1.2.1/include/

I chose make install instead of checkinstall since it was easier -- otherwise the ~/.megapov/1.2.1/povray.ini and povray.conf files weren't properly created (it wanted to put them in root).
