Right, but the error I showed you is from a compilation step. Try
running "make test" in a build directory different from the source
directory and you'll see.

-I isn't used when linking. What you need to do is to make sure that
exactly the right set of -I options is used for each source code file.
A more reasonable way would probably be to make a configure test that
turns off -Werror for silly compilers.
