[COMMITTED PATCH] Support sysdeps/.../include/ directories.

With this, you can now create an include/ subdirectory under a
sysdeps/... directory.  This is treated about like the top-level
include/ directory: sysdeps/foo/include comes before sysdeps/foo in
the -I order, but headers from sysdeps/foo/include will never be
installed.  Hence this can be used for wrapper headers of the same
name as installed headers, that serve to override definitions or add
additional definitions meant only for internal code.

It might now make sense to move all the miscellaneous noninstalled
headers from sysdeps/.../ to sysdeps/.../include/ just for better
clarity of reading the sources.  But I'm not completely convinced this
would be an improvement.  It would require changes to any explicit
#include <sysdeps/.../foo.h> lines.  So I'll leave that for later
