  Send configure.log to petsc-maint

How about -I/usr/local/include (my /usr/local is empty so configure definitely didn't find anything there, it's not mentioned in my environment either).  How about /usr/include (which is a system directory and need not, indeed should not, be specified explicitly) and /usr/lib/openmpi which has no C headers in it and really shouldn't be specified either.  Why can't I have -I$PETSC_DIR/$PETSC_ARCH/include -I$PETSC_DIR/include and *nothing* else unless I have packages in non-system directories?
