On linux pvengine.ini is called povray.ini, but I think jr is right the
shellout permission's are in povray.conf (which is just another ini file
in other than name.). This file is location usually installed in
/usr/local/etc/povray/3.8 on the system, but maybe not. There is a
similar configuration directory in your home $HOME/.povray/3.8 directory
with similar files. There can be others too... The most restrictive
setting anywhere wins with permissions. I think otherwise the last
setting of anything of a particular class wins (flag class wins over ini
settings IIRC - flexible I guess, but also can be quite tangled).
If you are able to compile your own code, you can configure with
--enable-debug and it turns on a bunch of unix specific output including
the search locations being used for the conf/ini files IIRC.
