directly from my .emacs and its been there for a while so I dont know if
its the best way:

;; open file/url at point
(require 'ffap)
(ffap-bindings)
(add-to-list 'ffap-c-path "/usr/src/linux/include")
(add-to-list 'ffap-c-path "/usr/src/linux/include/linux")
(add-to-list 'ffap-c-path "/usr/include")
(add-to-list 'ffap-c-path "/usr/include/gtk-2.0")
