The configure script does search in a number of standard places (most 
notably /usr/include and /usr/local/include but also a few more IIRC) 
and it works fine on most other OS's as far as I know. I have no idea 
why Homebrew and perhaps some others opt not to place it in 
/usr/local/include (OK admittedly I do know but I don't agree and it's 
another story).

We can't just go searching the whole file space - that could take AGES 
and there's also the chance we'd end up using some version that was not 
meant to be used, like down a 7 year old backup folder of your 
sister-in-law's ex-boyfriend's old PC. Obviously we could search 
whatever would be the canonical place for explicitly finding Homebrew 
libs, but IMHO *they* should fix it. Or perhaps I'm missing some clever 

On a side note there's a Homebrew package called john-jumbo but I 
believe that's the pre-archaic 1.8.0-jumbo-1 so better stay away from 
that. In this case they'd be better off using latest snapshot at any 
given time instead.

We know. Somehow you always make me smile :-)
