Some sort of compilation error while compiling node-expat on FreeBSD - about the header expat.h not being found even though it exists.

I'll fill in more details when I know them.


I guess wscript needs to find -I and -L with /usr/local or /usr/pkg


Yes. I think the expat.h file is in /usr/local/include and node /usr/include like in linux. Is there any way waf can be made to check both places by default? Probably /usr/include before /usr/local/include. I am guessing passing it into the include directive should do the trick?
