    My personal preference is /usr/local/include, which `gcc' searches
    automagically. This comes from experience in installing and
    maintaining XForms under SunOS, Solaris, and IRIX, where a system
    upgrade can wipe out any stuff that doesn't come with the system
    install disks. Under the GNU/Linux and *BSD systems where XForms
    comes as a standard package, the /usr/X11R6/include/X11 or
    /usr/include/X11 paths might be preferred.
