  Possibly the include paths are wrong.  If you manually add -I options to
your compiler command-line specifying the standard system directories, you
will break compilation because (e.g.) Gcc's private includes dir with the
fixed headers won't be found first in the list.  This can cause all kinds of
odd knock-on failures later in compilation.

  Dana, can we see the command-line you are using?
