I am using Gnu Global 6.6.2 to generate tags from some files in `/usr/include`. I am also using Universal Ctags as a plugin.

When i try to execute `$ global fprintf`, the stdio.h header file does not appear.

Here is some information about what I am using:

`$ global --version

And Ctags version, for the sake of completeness:

`$ ctags --version
Universal Ctags 0.0.0(f9bbb35e), Copyright (C) 2015 Universal Ctags Team
Universal Ctags is derived from Exuberant Ctags.

And some relevant environment variables:


I think this is enough information, I would appreciate some help!

Thank you,
