I think you should get a warning (under -v or whatever), when this happens.
Although the set of directories searched is correct, the order in which
they are traversed might be 'surprising'. This kind of configuration
bug is a pain to track down without such feedback. (There may
be two different foolib headers in different directories, and dammit, why
does the compiler insist on picking up the 'later' one?)

Other than that, fine by me.
