Of course, it was easy enough to add it to the Makefile.

From section 2.3 in the gcc docs:

  "GCC looks for headers requested with #include "file" first in the
  directory containing the current file, then in the directories as
  specified by -iquote options, then in the same places it would have
  looked for a header requested with angle brackets. For example, if
  /usr/include/sys/stat.h contains #include "types.h", GCC looks for
  types.h first in /usr/include/sys, then in its usual search path."

I'm using the following source and include files:


main.c has the line:

  #include "simplemenu/menu.h"

simplemenu/menu.c has the line:

  #include "screen.h"

gcc finds screen.h in simplemenu. cc65 only searches in the root
