Yes, and nothing changed about this.
I just verified it and the first path is the path where the source file
You can see all paths in the message window when you render.
The path to the standard POV-Ray include folder is best set in the
application preferences and not in the render preferences panel, but the
result should is the same.
Please verify and e-mail me directly if you can't get it to work, I
might have found a reason why it doesn't work on an Intel Mac.

On what kind of machine, the same iMac Core Duo?

I received some benchmarks form Windell H. Oskay and those indicated
that the Intel Macs perform very well.
But you can not really compare the G5 iMacs with the intel based
versions because the specifications are far from the same.
