actually, i came up with this, which is done in two parts, but needs
only one patsubst:

        $(patsubst -I%,-I$(srctree)/%,$(filter-out -I/%,$(1))) \
        $(filter -I/%,$(1))

obviously, the first line handles the cases where there is *no* slash
and applies the transformation i want, while the second simply scarfs
up the remainder unchanged.

none at all but, as you can see, i have something that appears to
