I don't.  I didn't know that I had to set CPPFLAGS, not CFLAGS.  Sorry
about this.  Of course, with setting the wrong variable, configure
couldn't find the *.h files and then everything went wrong.

Should the mechanism for specifying pathes for additional libraries be
documented in some way?  Maybe in the INSTALL file?  (I only looked
there.  Maybe this was also stupid.)
