1/ some public header were using #include "foo.h" meaning foo.h at the
same palce where the current header is... that was wrong... fixed
2/ some source include private headers, as expected using "", but they
themself include other private header using also "" and of course the
first private header can be included from different places in the
source tree... which measn that the -I$(dir $(3)) above is not going
to help.
public header _have_ to work with the <> notation... but for private
header that promise to be a bit of a headache to try to make it
works... and iirc Windows is sensitive to the number of -I on the
command line.. and that would impact all include not just the ""
