I've just did the same checks!
And I am as curious as you to find out whether this package should
Suggest or Recommend povray...

I hope some volunteers to install it and check, so that a serious bug
can be filed against kpovmodeler, if necessary...

Personally, I lack knowledge about povray and similar 3D renderers: as a
consequence I don't feel qualified to determine by myself whether

 * kpovmodeler works perfectly without povray,

 * kpovmodeler doesn't work because it needs povray (which is not
   installed), or
 
 * kpovmodeler doesn't seem to work, because I have no clue and don't
   know how to actually use it...    ;-)


So, in conclusion, any volunteers?
