I'd prefer that we didn't clutter up ${PREFIX}. (Other packages do this
too.) In my case, I use LOCALBASE as /usr on several machines.

Can you consider doing something like the following instead?

CONFIGURE_ARGS+= 	--includedir=${PREFIX}/include/${GDB_SUBPREFIX}

And then PLIST like:

Also, if you are going to use some variable to define this (GDB_SUBPREFIX
and GDB_PREFIX), you may want to use them in the PLIST too (with
PLIST_SUBSTR). If those variables aren't used anywhere else, I'd just get
rid of them.
