I've run hand compiled installs of POV-Ray 3.0 under NetBSD/i386 1.2.1,
1.3, and 1.3.1 with no problems.  The only modifications I made to the
software were those required by the licensing agreement (stating who
compiled the software and that the POV-Ray Team was not responsible for
supporting it, blah, blah, blah).

Other than reporting that I've had success with POV-Ray on NetBSD/i386,
I'm afraid I can't really help you out anymore.  I'm not much of a coder
by any stretch of the imagination.  Best of luck!
