if that "hack" works, it means the build system is looking for headers and  
so on in system wide pathes.
thus: the "hack" is either supposed to be the right way to do things or  
the build system is rather broken ...

according to the things above probably by setting the according variables  
fpr configure, gccc and so on or by scanning the config-files for hard  
coded pathes like /usr/include/.
