Actually, polyclipping/clipper.hpp is correct.
pkg-config gives me -I/usr/include.

I updated the patch accordingly and dropped the removal of libs/*. This should
be sufficient for cmake to not pick any leftovers.

Solved by https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.0/module/FindPkgConfig.html

It's building and working as expected.

This, and fonts-open-sans - and we should be good to go.
I haven't received more feedback from the font maintainers, need to check back
and see if the package is ok now.
