I don't think the question is primarily whether the headers that are
installed are self-sufficient, but how much of the GCC API is really
needed by plugins compiled against installed headers. As such, I agree
that adding headers on an as-needed basis seems a good conservative
approach. I guess, self-sufficiency could be tested with -MD, but an
actual installcheck target would be better.
