The problem is that stubdoms are blindly using the regular environment
config.h without reconfiguring libxc for their reduced environment.

As a result, config.h is correctly stating that memcheck.h exists in the
regular environment, even when it is included into the reduced stubdom

While removing -nostdinc does fix your problem, it is not the correct
fix.  memcheck.h is safe to use in this instance, but most header files
you find in /usr/include are not.

I am not sure what is the correct solution here is.  Introducing an
explicit --{en,dis}able-valgrind to the main ./configure will still
break for anyone who chooses to enable it.  I suspect a fix involves
someone draining the swamp which is the stubdom build system.
