so this is the private 'povray.conf':
; POV-Ray 3.8
[File I/O Security]
[Shellout Security]
[Permitted Paths]
read* = /usr/share/fonts/local
read* = %INSTALLDIR%/include
read* = %INSTALLDIR%/scenes
read* = %INSTALLDIR%/extra
read+write* = /tmp
read+write* = %HOME%

and /tmp and its descendants work.  usually.  what needs to be relaxed?
