Somewhat tangential to the current discussion, but I was referring
specifically to /usr/include and /usr/local/include, not to any sort of
${prefix}/include (which I always disable in our toolchains anyway; for
historical reasons our ${prefix}/include is where things like the cross
BFD's headers go, not where target headers go.  But that's just a quirk
of our environment.
