I have no problem with this, and I happen to agree that this is the 
way it should be... however, this will break compiles of external 
packages in cygwin that need the installed include files because of 
the system search order in gcc that is configured by cygwin.

See my post entitled: "strange GCC system include search order".

What this forces people to do is:
export 'CFLAGS=-isystem /usr/local/include'

which seems wrong to me; i.e. it is defined as a system include path 
in most if not all other installations of gcc on Unix.
