"Some trouble", or does it simply lack the code because it would be near impossible to glean all include dirs from the Makefiles of such projects?

This is where a compilation database (compile_commands.json) parser would be helpful; there are utilities to create such a database from the output from `make` ("compiledb" is one that works pretty good). There was some talk of such a parser a while back, has any progress been made?
