So I think you downloaded these two files :
- PovRay3.7.0.9-universal app.zip
- PovRay3.7.0.9-universal-Scenes-IncludeFiles-Docs.zip

Double-clic this two zip file give you to folders :
- PovRay3.7.0.9-universal app
- PovRay3.7.0.9-universal-Scenes-IncludeFiles-Docs

Folder "PovRay3.7.0.9-universal app" contains the main
application with a few files to read once.

Folder "PovRay3.7.0.9-universal-Scenes-IncludeFiles-Docs" contains
doc, include, ini, scenes... which you can copy into the application
folder (yes, you can ignore duplicates). All utils files/folders in the
same folder.

You can now move these folder anywhere on your disk.

Run "POVRay 3.7.0.x.app" (double-clic), go to "Preferences"
and adjust "System Include Paths" according to your installation location.

Have fun with POV ;)
