The idea, I suppose, is that you in fact *can* override glibc configury's
decision by specifying CPPFLAGS:

    $ ./configure --help
    Some influential environment variables:
      CPPFLAGS    (Objective) C/C++ preprocessor flags, e.g. -I<include dir> if
                  you have headers in a nonstandard directory <include dir>
    Use these variables to override the choices made by `configure' or to help
    it to find libraries and programs with nonstandard names/locations.
