From my perspective yes, we should search *standard* and project specific
include directories.  Normally that includes /usr/include and
/usr/include/<archname>, as well as /opt/trinity/include.  We should NOT
search all possible custom include directories.  If someone installs
something to, for example, /my/custom/includes they will need to specify
the path to that directory in their CMake build flags.

In the case of inotify things are messy because there are actually two
standard include directories possible--one for an (older?) standalone
inotify version and one for the glibc integrated version.
