Well. If you wanted to install different VDR versions to
/opt/vdr-$APIVERSION, you might have compiled with
PREFIX=/opt/vdr-$APIVERSION, and the header files would end up at
/opt/vdr-$APIVERSION/include which obviously isn't on the default
search path. Unless I'm misreading Christopher's e-mail just seemed to
say that this patch didn't make a difference to the problem he
described - that doesn't mean its not potentially useful.

Even if you don't add INCDIR directly to the CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS you could
add it to the pkg-config variables dumped into vdr.pc so that plugin
authors can use it if they need it. Currently its not available in
either place.
