I agree, but not for the example you quoted.

LFS Ch 6 gcc is installed before any third party libs like openssl therefore
the fixincludes process doesn't get the chance to "fix" the openssl headers.
It would only become an issue if gcc gets reinstalled at a later date (when
all the 3rd party libs are already installed).

Sidenote Rant:
It annoys me that on a brand new LFS using all the latest packages,
fixincludes tries to "fix" what it thinks are broken headers. Why are they
broken? Should someone knowledgable look at the affected headers and see if
the fixes are correct then submit bugs upstream? If the headers are not
broken then should bugs be submitted to the fixincludes maintainer? Any
