    Thank you,but after a long time trying.I found somebady said "Intel compiler was used and settings are probably written in windows dedicated source package. As far as I remember Intel cooperated with Chris Cason in adjusting performance of POV-Ray made with their compiler".And Linux Version was compiled with GCC.I think that may be a final answer.
