No, I mean I replied to _THIS_, the "more explanation" that you wrote

Actually your original question was simple to answer, but your extra
explanation made clear that what you asked didn't have much to do with
the real problem you have :-).

What you've written here, as I said in my reply yesterday, doesn't make
much sense as-is.  As I said then, no amount of variable manipulation in
your makefile will help your _compiler_ find header files that don't
exist.  If your compiler is including files named "foo.hh" and those
files don't exist, then just adding those names to a variable in a
makefile won't fix that problem.

We need you go back up a number of steps and describe your environment
and what you really want to do at a higher level.
