Did you compile them yourself ?

Did you read the output of ./configure about openexr ?
(not only the end, but when it search for openexr)

(From my experience with Ubuntu 16.04, no problem to have openexr in 
povray, I have the output of "povray --version" to prove it)

If it can help, I documented an even older version of ubuntu, when it 
was 3.7RC4 (yep, it's old):
