povray releases source code, but has never been free software. There was
a plan to rectify that for povray 4 by relicensing stuff where possible
and rewriting the rest of the code. Last I saw the povray folks haven't
released 3.7, let alone started on povray 4.

From Google it appears there are some people doing that, but none that I
can see for Debian GNU/kFreeBSD.
