One such program is pdb2pov by one Dr. Eric Suchanek. The latest version
i found is 1.19 from 1994, and his email adress given in the readme is
apparently no longer valid.
I have corrected an off-by-one bug in a loop count in his code and placed
it on out ftp server tutor.oc.chemie.th-darmstadt.de - the 'archie' servers
should be able to lead you to original/official versions.
PS: If anybody knows the current address of Dr.Suchanek, i would appreciate
    this information. I have added ball-and-stick VRML output recently and
    would like to consult him before releasing my version.
