#44067 new enhancement

use "configure.includes {path1 path2}" instead of "configure.cppflags -I{path1} -I{path2}"

Given that some build systems like CMake don't directly support CPPFLAGS (see #42872) (but also for other reasons) it would be nice to specify the include paths with an array of paths as opposed to "hardcoded" configure.cppflags -I{path1} -I{path2} -I{path3}.

The advantage of this approach would be that one could easily switch to -isystem {path1} -isystem {path2} or set CMAKE_INCLUDE_PATH={path1}:{path2} or whatever, depending on OS version, build system etc.

A similar flag would be nice for library paths ('-L/opt/local/lib') and framework paths (-F/opt/local/Library/Frameworks).
