Well, it wouldn't be difficult to install the libs (or eg. "gcc", or whatever) 
into a custom path and to ask everyone to deal with it either.  That doesn't 
make it the right thing to do. 
See comment 3.  When done _by a packager on "IMO" basis_, it's (most likely, 
unchecked in this particular case) completely unnecessary, bloats dependent 
packages, possible maintenance burden, results in projects needing distro 
specific adaptations, not what upstream intended, and unexpected in general. 
I didn't say that dropping everything into /usr/include is optimal either.  
But non-transparent changes like this should not be made unilaterally by 
packagers, but rather reported/fixed upstream (preferably fixing it with a 
foo-config and/or a pkgconfig file) if something causes real world problems, 
or if someone cares deeply enough about it otherwise and can convince
