No, that line is fine. In some places the program does tell the user 
what official version of POV-Ray it is based on.

Found the culprits though; Git master should be ok now.

Thanks for finding those buggers, I'd probably never have seen them myself.

This is GREAT!

I am now playing around with the sample scene files before trying out on 
my own scenes, but it looks fantastic.

Keep up the good work!

Of course. I wouldn't want /you/ sniffing around in there ;-)

Seriously, I have no idea how I'd even be able to change the permissions.

Did you make install?

If not, then this is to be expected.

Uh... forget that statement. If you hadn't done make install, there 
would be nothing in /usr/local/etc..., would there.

But it also means you installed as root; could there possibly be an 
.uberpov directory now in the root's home directory?

What does POV-Ray proper do in that situation, anyway?

As a side note, this message is just a warning; UberPOV should be able 
to run just fine without a ~/.uberpov/1.37/uberpov.conf, except that it 
prints this message. Same as POV-Ray does when it misses its 
~/.povray/3.7/povray.conf file.

You might want to check though whether UberPOV accidently wrote an 
uberpov.conf somewhere into ~/.povray, or even replaced POV-Ray's .conf 
file. That would be seriously bad.
