If libgnutls-config --cflags returns -I/usr/include at this
moment then you'll get:

[misiek at arm misiek]$ gcc -I/usr/include test.c
cc1: warning: changing search order for system directory "/usr/include"
cc1: warning:   as it has already been specified as a non-system directory

with gcc 3.1 all the time if gcc is installed with /usr as --prefix.
