Which system this is on? For me, the template compiles just fine with
an out-of-tree build with the master branch just before your commit.
Those #include "../file.h" are used in several headers under
include/types, and that's about the only way of making them work
irrespective of preprocessor include flags. And it seems that they
also include the correct file in your case, but that files included
from those ones don't work for some reason.
