Not usually.  The list of dependencies that is included in
omits all the system headers so you typically only get local include
files (ones that come with the package).

It's possible to get unwanted ones on there, but packagers just need to
be careful about this... it's only an issue when you're creating a
distribution (with "make dist" or one of its siblings).
