Sure but in the case of povray a mere revision increase isn't what's required; that was already done in r97300. Rather, this version of povray is simply incompatible with libpng 1.5. So someone needs to investigate whether a newer version of povray is available to which the port could be updated, or if there is a libpng 1.5 compatibility patch that could be applied. So as always it's good to have separate tickets for each separate issue that needs to be separately addressed.
