  POV-Ray reports wrong file to be missing

When POV-Ray for Unix is started and there is no
~/.povray/3.7/povray.conf, you get the following message:

povray: cannot open the user configuration file
/usr/local/etc/povray/3.7/povray.conf: No such file or directory
povray: this pre-release version of POV-Ray for Unix expires in 15 day(s)
and 12 hour(s) No input file provided

You get this message even if there is a
/usr/local/etc/povray/3.7/povray.conf. This can be very confusing if you
do not know that actually the other file is missing. This is not the case
with version 3.6.1.
