no, -isystem can't be used with bundled externals because it breaks 
incremental builds.... with -I we get deps on the headers [to be 
rewritten into deps on the UnpackedTarball target by concat-deps], and 
since we don't copy the headers out of the UnpackedTarball dir 
incremental builds tend to work fine, with oboslete .so.N files 
littering instdir as the only problem typically.

agree; typically system header files only change in incompatible ways on 
distro-upgrades so you know to "make clean" twice a year.
