I've tested this at home and it did not seem to work 
(--with-cdf=/usr/local/cdf27-dist, with src/include and src/lib subdirs). 
Maybe I have to experiment more ?

Moreover, I find it strange that you have to keep sources around for this to 
work as the src/lib and src/include folders are found only in unpacked 
sources. What if a user installs only a binary rpm for cdf or does not keep 
sources/does a 'make clean' ?
Well, I guess the --with-extra-includes and --with-extra-libs flags still 
work, if required at all (i.e. cdf installed in non-standard locations)...

However, I fear there is a problem with my cdf datasource and its includes: 
the file cdfdist.h which defines some macros I use is not installed by 
default by the cdf Makefile. I guess I'd have to provide either a local copy 
or even better, a stripped down version. I will send this to the list
