There are two things going on here:

1) You downloaded the wrong mapnik. You mentioned an include file with 
*.hpp files. That's the mapnik software repository. What you need to 
render the 'mapnik' map from osm.org is actually another repository:


2) You're working from outdated guides on the wiki, that haven't been 
updated to reflect the new method of setting up the stylesheet for your 
environment. You don't need the osm-template.xml anymore.

Read http://svn.openstreetmap.org/applications/rendering/mapnik/README 
and the generate_xml.py script.
