Sorry you had problems compiling it. I've committed a fix, and updated
the tarball.

In src/, a file called intersect gets built.

intersect -h will give you some help, but you can use it to do
arbitrary boolean operations on .ply files (and .obj and .vtk -
although the loaders for these formats are probably a little less
forgiving). the output format is selectable, but is .ply by default.
you can pipe the output of intersect straight into view to visualise
the result.
