   AX_EXT_CHECK_HEADER(<header>, <paths>).


Check for <header> with -I<path> for each path in <paths> if need be. The first sucecssful path is chosen (eg if you say AX_EXT_CHECK_HEADER(foo.h, bar baz qux) and -Ibaz works then -Iqux will not be tested.

Any -I flags that locate a header are added to CFLAGS and CPPFLAGS. AS with AC_CHECK_HEADERS it causes HAVE_<header>_H to be defined as 1.


   AX_EXT_HAVE_HEADER(openssl/rsa.h, /usr/local/include /usr/local/ssl/include /usr/local/openssl/include)
