Re: #include problem for generated files included in system.h

Thanks for running into this before I did. ;-)  I've used separate source
and build trees for years on my primary zsh test system, because I build
the shell both static and dynamic link from the same source tree.

Rather than generate <some-relative-path-added-to-zsh.mdd>/system.h
why not add -Isome-relative-path-added-to-zsh.mdd to CLFAGS?  Is the
path being generated at a poor place relative to building Makefiles?

While we're at it the name "system.h" has always seemed a bit generic
to me, and therefore likely to clash with something.
