In your makefile, or in the command line you might compose yourself to gcc at 
the very least, you can use or arrange for the '-I' option to specify 
separately all include paths that are outside the standard one.

So if you have headers in 'c:\myprojects\include' where you might keep your own 
custom headers commonly used for multiple projects you have, your makefile or 
you should see a command line:

   gcc -Ic:\myprojects\include ...

and then you won't see the 'header file not found' error message.  If you use 
the pre-processor (cpp.exe) by itself, it also requires that flag and format.

The standard include path is included implicitly, so you shouldn't need to 
specify it.

'info gcc' should be authoritative information for you as to what all you can 
do with the options to gcc in djgpp.
