Hi Stephen,

Unfortunately, several features of POV-Ray SDL are not yet supported. In this
particular case the problem is that string functions are not supported.
Consequently, the parser expects a quoted string after #include.

A list of unsupported features is available here:

http://www.infinity3dengine.com/about/povray-sdl

To give a general idea, about 33% of scenes in 'scenes/advanced' directory load
without error and give non-background display.
