For the packages I've written, I have configurable paths to the other
packages I need.  Then the Makefile creates symlinks pointing to those
paths.  I use the symlinks' names for #include paths, linking, etc.

The system/common-local distinction isn't necessary with slashpackage.
The private directory option is accounted for in some packages by the
configurability of the paths to other packages.
