Yes, except that NetBSD does not consider that a problem.  (Some time
ago I tried to offer fixes for such and was told that; more recently
someone else reported similar experiences.)

Yes - and worse, "get the includes in the right order"; it's not enough
to include the right files, you have to get the order right too.

Yes, me too.  I've occasionally considered trying to make gcc do that,
but so far I anticipate it being intimidating enough that I haven't
actually tried.
