Checked into GIT source, the 4 patched files of fileexr.C/.h and
fileppm.C/.h after testing both.

Andrea, you can try these exact steps:
1) mkdir /tmp/ppm1 and mkdir /tmp/ppm2  and mkdir /tmp/ppm3 in a window
2) start cinelerra (with the 2 patchsets having been built in) then load
with replace a video
3) render that video entire project using ppm sequence (render to /tmp/
4) load just the ppm sequence you created in step 3 (load with replace /tmp/
5) now just render this using ppm sequence and this time to /tmp/*ppm2*
   it should be really fast
6) for testing purposes, add an effect to a small section of the video
loaded in step 4 and now render to /tmp/*ppm3.*a.ppm and it will still be
faster than the original ppm1 but not as fast as in step 5 because it can
only direct copy the unmodified portion of the video as opposed to where
the effect is
