Question Setting up includes and libs for gcc

I am trying to install the Palm SDK 3.5 libraries. They provide the actual include/ and lib/ directories, which you have to install manually (no install script or rpm). I tried following the instructions of creating the directory /usr/local/palmdev/ and placing the lib/ and include/ directories in there, but when I try to compile it, gcc doesn't see those include files. Is there some environment variable that I should be setting for it to look in those directories? What would be the standard and clean way to solve this problem? I appologize in advance if this has been answered elsewhere, but I have been unable to come up with a search query specific enough.

Thanks for any help,

you can always just copy the files in /usr/local/palmdev/include to /usr/include, that seem easiest

if the includes are in a directory
like /usr/local/palmdev/include/somedirname
then just make a link to that dir in

otherwise look at the Makefile you are using or the output when you try to compile and see if you can add
to the gcc command

the same with the libs if it won't link
just make links in /usr/lib or copy them to /usr/lib or adjust the Makefile to include
-L/usr/local/palmdev/lib in the gcc command
