Update of bug #32473 (project make):

                  Status:                    None => Not A Bug              
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #1:

This works as documented; from the GNU make manual:

   If the specified name does not start with a slash, and the file is
not found in the current directory, several other directories are
searched.  First, any directories you have specified with the `-I' or
`--include-dir' option are searched (*note Summary of Options: Options
Summary.).  Then the following directories (if they exist) are
searched, in this order: `PREFIX/include' (normally `/usr/local/include'
(1)) `/usr/gnu/include', `/usr/local/include', `/usr/include'.

It may have not been the best idea to always search the current directory
first but it's far too late to change this behavior now.

There is no way to avoid the local directory being searched first (other than
giving the full path).
