dd08ef89d53831246acefcd7c14d00b3c3da4e0f has "fixed" that with a
horrible hack
that should be reverted.  but if it is now broken again there must be
a different problem.  perhaps b08f6ca2e1f3d9b393435a137dbd247f3cf20b6d
broke it?

the files are found first by their path in instdir, second by the
"include" list in instsetoo_native/util/ (which ideally
shouldn't contain any path into instdir at all).
