The fact that they're in double-quotes indicates that they should be
in the working directory or somewhere that must be specified by an '-I'
on the compile line.

Anything that is 'expected' to be in the 'standard' #include hierearchy
is put in angle-brackets instead of double-quotes.

Therefore, 'RFTM' is _the_ answer to figuring out where they 'should' 
be found.  'Somewhere" there are directions about using those headers,
which will tell you about where they are to be found.
