  povray.conf vs. povray.conf

Since I'm running virgins these days I ran into this in my Qt code, 
which is identical to  UnixOptionsProcessor::process_povray_conf(void) @ 
vfe/unix/unixoptions.cpp:1019

So, povray successfully reads /etc/povray/3.7/povray.conf and then tries 
to read /home/dick/.povray/3.7/povray.conf.
It spits out an error/warning if it fails to find the personal 
povray.conf (and continues processing regardless of if either was found).
Why should it care?  As long as one of them was found, the I/O 
restrictions are defined somewhere.  It seems that if the system config 
was read, it should override them, or not, but silently.
If neither was found, then spit an error.

On my working system, I had copied the system config to my personal 
config just to shut the warning up.
