Cited from the libopenobex documentation 
(see /usr/share/doc/libopenobex1-dev/openobex/c25.html):
"To be able to use the OpenOBEX API you must include the file 

kdebluetooth currently does
#include <obex.h>
in quite some files but the header file is at /usr/include/openobex/obex.h and 
the API says to use
#include <openobex/obex.h>

Should kdebluetooth fix the include statements or should the openobex.pc file 
say that "includedir=${prefix}/include/openobex"?

previously, libopenobex used openobex-config that always stated 
an -I/usr/include. kdebluetooth that checked obex.h at that path and if not 
present added an openobex/ to that patch and checked again.
However, pkg-config is too smart and does not output and -I/usr/include.

What are your opinions about this?
