Oh ok, what it should do is importantly add -I/path/to/libmesh/include/libmesh,
So everything will resolve without being prefixed. 

I know that works with the pkg-config option and libmesh-config option - ill double check Make.common when I get in.

However, does this build system work with the old include paths?  I see an include path like: -I/Users/gastdr/projects/libmesh/install/include  on the compile line.  Is there a configure switch I need to throw to get it to be -I/Users/gastdr/projects/libmesh/install/include/libmesh  ??

Found the --enable-legacy-include-paths option... but I ended up with a bunch of bogus -I's like so:

-I/Users/gastdr/projects/libmesh/install/include -I/include/base -I/include/enums -I/include/error_estimation -I/include/fe -I/include/geom -I/include/mesh -I/include/numerics -I/include/parallel -I/include/partitioning -I/include/physics -I/include/quadrature -I/include/reduced_basis -I/include/solvers -I/include/systems -I/include/utils

Tracking it down now...
