If a program installs its header files in a subdirectory, it should
be well-defined and packages using it should use #include <foo/bar.h>,
or it should provide a pkg-config sniplet or config script that
provides the appropriate C(PP)FLAGS.
I don't think it's up to buildlink3 to fix this. (Though of course
it can be used as a workaround.)
