VPATH/vpath are for prerequisites only: included makefiles are not prerequisites so VPATH/vpath are not searched for them.

This request has been made before, so I'm leaving it marked as an enhancement to be considered further.

In {GNU Make 3.81beta3
This program built for i686-pc-linux-gnu} remaking a makefile uses a custom search path which includes standard system libraries. However, unlike all otther targets it does not honor the VPATH and vpath search control directives. This precludes using existing source-location conventions for makefiles.

I've filed this as a bug; arguably it is an enhancement.
