As others have suggested, I agree that:  /usr/include/CGAL/CORE
is a safe, easy, and totally reasonable fix.

Also, "yum provides /usr/include/CORE" indicates that nothing else
currently owns that directory so I think its also an acceptable

The only point I wanted to make in the original review was the
"inclusion of 3rd party bits" -- that we should be careful about
projects that include embedded copies of other projects that
may (?) deserve to be treated as separate entities.
