The problem with that approach is that it breaks apart
on latest red hat and mandrake distributions, and
probably other systems that use gcc 3.2. See

ChangeLog entry was:

        * configure.in: removed -I/usr/local/include
from default
        CPPFLAGS, as it makes configure miss all
header files on on
        gcc 3.2 based Mandrake Linux 9.0.

This seems to be a widely experienced problem with gcc
3.2, here's a take from Zack Weinberg:

It doesn't seem to be going to be reverted to the old
behaviour soon. So I'd instead propose to remove
automatic adding of /usr/local/lib from
--with-libraries instead as it's causing problems,
