The .tmpl file isn't really a php script, so there's not a way
to use <?php ... ?> tags inside of the template file.

However, what you can do is create a function (in config.php or
skin.php) that looks like:

    function IncludeRandomImage() {
        global $SkinDir;

Then in the template you can do  <!--function:IncludeRandomImage-->
to call this function (which then includes the randomimage.php script).

Also note that your original example has "$SkinDirUrl/randomimage.php"
as the argument to the include() function, which is almost certainly
_not_ what you want.  The include() function expects a filename, not
a url.
