Hi Chris,

I wrote earlier:

I see now what's happening more precisely.  Our gcc-7 package inherits
from gcc-6 'native-search-paths' for the CPATH variable.  Because of
this, the 'set-paths' phase in 'gnu-build-system' sets the CPATH to
include <NATIVE_INPUT>/include for all native inputs that are
directories with an 'include' subdirectory.

The 'source' is itself a native input.  When it's a tarball, it will not
be included, but when it's a source checkout, it _is_ included, although
it shouldn't be.

I'm now fairly confident that this workaround would work.  Another
workaround would be to add another phase that removes the CPATH
component corresponding to 'source', as Tobias does.
