|  readline for example.  Since -I${LOCALBASE}/include must be passed to
|  the compiler to pick up some required headers, if readline is
|  installed, then the PostgreSQL configure script will _always_ use the
|  readline headers from ${LOCALBASE}/include/readline/readline.h instead
|  of the ones from /usr/include/readline/readline.h.  It's not right to
|  force -I/usr/include at the start of the header search list since
|  private headers may have a name clash with system headers.

  Hm, an alternative solution would be to frob the configure script?
