    Hi fjf,

    the reason we use <fribidi/fribidi.> is, IIRC, because in earlier versions
    of Fribidi the include files went directly into one of the include
    directories but with the arrival of 0.10 series, they went into a fribidi
    subdirectory. By using <fribidi/fribidi.h> we always include the 0.10.x
    header file, even if there is a older version of fribidi on the system.
