   Hi Steven.

   Thank you for the explanation.

   I committed the patch.

   Changeset link:

   Hmmm... but isn't this target actually the wrong one to use here?
Isn't the intention here to just install the headers belonging to this
one library and not all libraries every time? Not sure how that 'ideal'
would be implemented though as a library can depend on many headers from
other libraries as well.

   Nice to know it's getting better. When you do get it working
completely - just send the patch in.

   Many thanks.
