Povray slackBuild addendum re: boost_thread v1.54
Just a heads-up for Persistence of Vision raytracer fans who might be trying to build version 3.7.0.RC7. You have to tell the linker to look in "libboost_system.so" for a symbol or two that used to be in "libboost_thread.so." (Just to be pedantic, I added an explicit link to boost_thread.)
