INCLUDE files can't be found.

I am trying to compile various sybase products. I realised I hadn't installed the include files eg.(stdio.h,stdlib.h)
So I whacked on the Kernel headers RPM
well no i can don a global disk search and find the include files. but programs I am compiling cannot find the include files.
they aren't all in the one directory either.
Basically my question is:

How is the path of the include files set?

I just assume that your include files are in the follow directory:
Then, you need the following command to compile:
gcc -I/mount1/include my.c -o my.o

the include files are located in more than one location.
I am using Makefiles.
I shouldn't have to enter the path into the makefile.
the include path should be located elsewhere.
You need to include the include paths in your Makefile; there is a Makefile variable INCLUDES. If the files are in more than one location, you might want to define it like
INCLUDES = -I/usr/include -I/usr/local/include -I/home/cam_rat/include etc in your Makefile.

Good Luck
