You can set environment variables to help GCC find include files and
libraries in your shell's startup script. For include files you can set
CPATH, for libraries you'll need to set LIBRARY_PATH. See

Both can contain different paths separated by a colon (:).

How to set environment variables depends on the shell you use. csh uses
the 'set' command, while sh and bash use 'export'. See your shell's
manual page for details.
