Configure created by doesn't add $prefix/include to include path?

I am building gnome from cvs, parallel to standard RH8.0 gnome 2 which I use for everyday work. I download the bzip2 libraries as source and compile these into my parallel build as well, which creates a $PREFIX/include/bzip.h.

The configure script created for gnome-vfs by in gnome-common does not seem to look in $PREFIX/include, only in /usr/include. Therefore my configure script always fails and tells me I don't have the bzip libraries. If I copy or link bzip.h into /usr/include all goes well.

I believe the makefiles created are fine, they do look in $PREFIX. Put me straight, isn't this really bad? (I'm assuming this affects all gnome modules and not just gnome-vfs). Shouldn't the tests in configure use exactly the same include directories as the makefiles? I would have thought this could create all kinds of subtle build bugs on various configurations... or am I doing something completely stoopid.

PS. If the author of bzip happens to be reading, could please you please add an install target to the shared library makefile for bzip...
