Using -v flag shows these paths (as well as a bunch of other stuff).
Here's what I get:

You'll have to parse the output to get the include paths shown between:

#include <...> search starts here:


End of search list.

You may be curious about the /usr/local/include entries.  If you look at
the command, you'll see 2 -isystem flags.  I've had to add those to get
the compiles to work on a simple hello_work.cpp program.
