Sorry, but I don't understand your question.

Your #1, #2, and #3 do not seem to be about Icicles.  And I don't
know what function `insert-file-name-relative-include-directories' is.

Wrt the last paragraph, just what do you mean by the "value selected
by icicle"?  I also don't understand the rest of that paragraph (at all).

[I take it that you are not talking about insertion, into the minibuffer,
of a file name at point.  But if you are, just use `M-.' in the minibuffer.
