povray package is broken: if you try to render a pov-scene it results in this:

Parsing...Scene File Parser Initialization Error: Reading from /home/damir/archlogoTest1.pov is not permitted.
Check the configuration in /usr/local/etc/povray.conf or ~/.povray.conf.

-> it looks for povray.conf in /usr/local/etc instead of /usr/etc
-> there is no povray.conf installed at all (nowhere)

=> package is useless

if you need a *.pov file to try, see
for a basic example
   archtest1.pov (0.7 KiB)
This task depends upon
