    relative paths with autotools

    Right now in my autotools project I'm including some files with alot of "../"'s in their names. Is there anyway where I can force it to start looking in the root of my project so i can just do "foo/bar/test.h"

    I think id clean things up a bit.

    If you are using GCC, you can do a -I <<-- this is an uppercase i(eye) and use the include path. I think this makes all of your #includes be with <> instead of "" after you do this. -I sets/expands the standard include path.
