This usually means that you have a string that is missing the double quotes
at the end, so open up config.h at line 2 and check for something that looks
like:

#define SOMECONST "some text

note the missing double quote at the end. Just add the double quote and try
to compile again.

The rest of these errors are ancilliary to the first one.

Good luck!
