No. /usr/local is moving into many different things in the base and ports. We should do it in a consistent way. What we have now is not consistent and somewhat brittle. > In any case, if such paths are added to external compilers, we better > make sure almost everything in buildworld uses -nostdinc, and specifying > exactly the include directories we need, and no others. Cumbersome, but > maybe for a good cause. That's the non-brittle solution here. An over-reliance on defaults makes it difficult to ensure other compilers will work, especially ones we don't tightly control the defaults for.
