The traditional UNIX world uses certain hard-coded, default directories.
/usr/include is one.  If you have it and it is on the drive cygwin32 mounts
as "/", gcc will use it, regardless of what is there.  The solution you 
arrived at to avoid the co-existence problem is reasonable and workable in
this context.
