So far, official POV-Ray does not have any such feature.

You /can/ create depth maps "out of the box" though, provided you have
control over the scene's textures.

To do that, use `finish { diffuse 0 specular 0 phong 0 ambient 0
emission 1 }`, and a gradient pigment rotated and translated in such a
way that it aligns with the camera.

Make sure to render to a 16-bit image format or OpenEXR, or your depth
map precision will be pretty low.
