No clue if it's mentioned earlier, and I'm to lazy to search when I know the
answer ;-)

The reasonable things to do, which causes the least problems is to use the
"flags" rule to add things to the standard variables. I'm not sure this is
universally followed, but then again the existing toolsets have a varied
origin. Since you asked about includes and such, here's what you would do to
add a regular include:

flags the-toolset HDRS : /some/interesting/place ;

You can repeat that to keep adding more.
