Because anyone could decide to place the project root anywhere. e.g. a 
/opt/va-0.29/{include,lib} hierarchy. This also works akin to *-config 
scripts (imlib2, freetype2) whereby the *-config script actually derives 
the compiler flags.

And having an explicit #include <va-0.29/va.h> in the code is a non-sense. 
Likewise, I pretty dislike having va.h in the plain include directory, and 
I don't like two-letter directory names either.
