i dont know what failures you saw in the past but, afaik, all standard gcc 
packages have /usr/include and /usr/local/include in their default search 
paths (or equivalent paths depending on your install)

yes, that's what i mean ... for example, xine-lib would use it to determine 
where the user wants to install xine.h and then it would make sure that 
`xine-config --cflags` had the write info for apps that use xine ...

true ... i always forget about CPPFLAGS ... few people ever use it :)
but in this case, you're write ... CPPFLAGS should define the extraneous 
include paths
