Yes, it should indeed.
I used a slightly different solution though.
It relies on the default include flags already including the srcdirs.
Does that work for your use case too? (See revised patch attached.)

I looked at the features.h tweak also in your patch.
But I am not comfortable including something like that.
It feels like it needs a different test (whether we are actually on a
POSIX system or not). And I am not sure it really should define uid_t,
gid_t, mode_t, and pid_t. Those normally don't come from features.h
(they would come from sys/types.h).

Cheers,

Mark

Subject: [PATCH] configure: Add new --enable-install-elfh option.

We explicitly test (with system-elf-libelf) that our include headers
work with the system elf.h header. But it might be helpful to install
the elf.h file for a private install. Our elf.h header really is just
a copy of the latest glibc elf.h. But it might be newer and include
more constants than the system installed elf.h.

Add a new configure option --enable-install-elfh to install elf.h.
But warn when it is enabled for the default /usr or /usr/local prefix
because it might clash with the glibc/system elf.h header in that case.
