When a C++Builder project contains some Delphi source files, the Delphi include path is not properly filled to the Delphi compiler. There is no way to specify additional include directories.

See steps and attached project.

The option -I passed to DCC32 is incomplete, it does not contain additional paths of project options:

Here is the -I option:
-I"c:\program files\embarcadero\rad studio\8.0\include\windows\crtl\FR";"c:\program files\embarcadero\rad studio\8.0\include\windows\rtl\FR";"C:\Program Files\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\8.0\include\boost_1_39\boost\tr1\tr1";"C:\Program Files\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\8.0\include\boost_1_39";"c:\program files\embarcadero\rad studio\8.0\include";"c:\program files\embarcadero\rad studio\8.0\include\windows\crtl";"c:\program files\embarcadero\rad studio\8.0\include\dinkumware";"c:\program files\embarcadero\rad studio\8.0\include\windows\sdk";"c:\program files\embarcadero\rad studio\8.0\include\windows\rtl";"c:\program files\embarcadero\rad studio\8.0\include\windows\vcl";"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\RAD Studio\8.0\hpp"  

It should contain "included_path".
Steps to Reproduce:
either open the attached project or follow the following steps:

1. Create a new C++Builder console project
2. Add a new Delphi unit to this project
3. in this unit, add the following code


4. save your project in a directory
5. create a new text file, named, and save it in a subdirectory: the relative file name is included_path\
6. Open the project options --> Delphi Compiler --> Browsing path
7. Add "included_path" to the list of path
8. compile the project

exp: it compiles since all paths are ok
act: it fails to open the included file because the command line is incorrect

Specify relative path inside the {$I } command.
Unfortunately, this is not always possible, one might rely on compiler inclusion path!!!
