Thank you Thomas. It actually renders very quickly, sans bloom.

Unfortunately, the bump maps appear to be 8-bit grayscale, not 16-bit. Even
though IrfanView reports a 16-bit format, my tests in POV-Ray showed major
terracing artifacts like you would expect from a lower bit depth. (Not seen here
because I kept the resolution below a certain size). I should probably try the
maps them out in other programs to see if POV is at fault, although I doubt it
is...
