You can fix that from your side - if you're so inclined - by including the
omitted headers in an #if 0 block to enable the scanner to see them.

Currently a number of tests seems to be failing due to a missing
config/user.hpp, so it's a real problem. But there's also something else
that is wrong with the headers, as other tests seem to be using older header
versions, and that doesn't seem to be caused by a missed dependency.
