Kludge suggestion: why not put the headers in the versioned location,
but put symlinks to them in ${prefix}/include? The compiler won't
consult those symlinks (because of the versioned headers) but the user
can use them for reference if they wish.

(Sorry, that was too ugly. I haven't had my morning coffee yet.)
