Modifying system-wide include path in Fedora

Hi. I'm trying to compile a package, but it is having difficulty finding my freetype2 header files. From what I can see, the freetype2 headers are not in my system-wide include path. I've searched on the web, but cannot find out how to permanently add the /usr/include/freetype2 directoy to my include search path. I can't spot anything in /etc/profile, or in any of the files in /etc/profile.d that look self-explanatory.

So, could someone please tell me how to do it or point me in the direction of a web reference?

Thanks in anticipation,
