To be fair, that doesn't prevent you from using POV-Ray altogether.  I also have
OS 10.5.6 on a MacBook Pro and didn't notice any problems, although I prefer the
command-line versions of POV-Ray, MegaPOV, and MC-POV.  If that fails, you can
also install Ubuntu and Windows XP for a triple-boot system.  I don't use them
very often, but have had good luck with POV-Ray under both of those.
