I too have povray working fine under the vanilla
universe. I can also sucessfully compile it using the
standard povray instructions. What I'm not sure is
how to incorperate the "condor_compile ..." commands
into my build so I can use the standard universe.
In general, I think tips from users who have
recompiled very large applications that come with big
configure scripts, makefiles, etc., would also be nice
