Latest commit b3495c5 Feb 17, 2017 @iyerr3 iyerr3 committed with orhankislal Build: Add error for missing server includedir

Missing server headers is a common error with new contributors. This
leads to a non-related error with CMake. This commit fixes that by
explicitly asking user to check server includedir.

Closes #102
