  asciidoctor and sass were both recently added
and appear to be copying quickbook's brokenness

  It's the right thing for rc, as rc is expected
to find C/C++ headers.

  I don't think so. The include paths from depending on
/zlib//zlib will be added to whatever other include paths
the target has, but that's unavoidable.
