If this is an option (in which the default is to leave
things alone) during installation, there shouldn't be
any problem. In fact, this is how I install now.

Specifically, not only do the #includes have to be
changed, but anything that matches
"^#(define|include).*\.hpp" (I'm not sure if this
exact pattern is correct but you should get the idea).
 Currently, I blindly change all ".hpp" into ".h", but
that change can be too inclusive.

Anyway, something like this is more a luxury than a
necessity. I shouldn't've mentioned it until we dealt
with the real issues at hand.
