Using explicit paths to include files has been talked about in the past;
e.g. https://lists.webkit.org/pipermail/webkit-dev/2011-November/018632.html

The most convincing counter argument I can remember is that it'll make
refactoring harder because you'll have to update all #include's when you
move headers.

It would be great if we can figure out if this also improves the build time
on Mac/Linux.
