Ok, now I get it. In my case TLB was not derived from H but the funny
thing is that it still worked. :) It worked because the generator that
created a TLB target also created an 'H' target:

generators.register-c-compiler midl.compile.idl : IDL : TLB H C(%_i)
C(%_proxy) C(%_dlldata) ;

So 'implicit-includes' caught up the directory were H was created and
this directory was the same as TLB's one.
