	gcc only looks in /usr/local/include if you did not configure it with 
--prefix=/usr after editing the prefix entry in the configure file to 
reflect that as the install tree.

	Of course, that may not be completely possible on an Apple. When I 
bootstrap a new compiler I always install it into /usr tree, except that 
isn't true now I'm on an Apple.
