Compile Error - Missing header file


Trying to compile elsa (E17) in slackware 13.17 but it errors stating it's missing Eina.h

I've checked and the MakeFile lists the path to Eina.h which I have -I/usr/local/include/eina-1/Eina.h

I dont understand why its complaining I am missing a file that I most certainly have. (I ran autogen.sh)

eina is already compiled. its just not looking in the path listed in MakeFile.
I have to basically add each damn path to the C_INCLUDE_PATH env var which is retarded.

man gcc says:
Code:
gcc [-Idir...]

-I dir
    Add the directory dir to the list of directories to be searched for header files.
It probably should be either "-I/usr/local/include/eina-1" or "-I/usr/local/include", depending on how the #include directive is written in your source file; but definitely not be "-I/usr/local/include/eina-1/Eina.h".

That's exactly how it is. (-I/usr/local/include/eina-1)
Reason why I'm irritated. lol
