The standard doesn't talk about directories and paths at all, so both
compilers behave equally compliant. The changes necessary to support gccs
search pattern don't fit easily into the existing code (it assumes a more or
less static list of search paths), so I would be glad, if you could consider
using -Isimplemenu again :-)

BTW: Is there a more detailed description of the search algorithm? And, does
anybody know, how popular windows compilers do it?
