If building in a path that starts with /usr, the includedir=$(echo "@includedir@" | sed "s#^$prefix_build#$prefix_real#") assignment in the ends up having the path it processes ran through a path substitution once before this line is executed because the @includedir@ in the is set to the string '${prefix}/include'.  ${prefix} is assigned just above includedir in to prefix=$(echo "$prefix_build" | sed "s#^$prefix_build#$prefix_real#")

I believe we need to update the includedir to 

includedir=$(echo "@includedir@")

Or rename the prefix variable in so that there isn't a naming conflict if a string is passed in via @includedir@ with that variable.

Without fixing this you end up with multiple /usr substitutions in the includedir string, each replaced with the real path.  ie resulting in an invalid path.
