There is an easy way to have exactly the search paths you want:

Just use --forget-inc-paths when calling any of the tools. This will remove
all paths including the builtin ones from the search list. Then use -I to
setup your own search list.

Please note that I'm developing cc65 under Linux and this is exactly the
scenario I'm living with every day:-)

I have a stable version of cc65 installed and I'm using one or more
development versions in several directories. The library build system does
even have --forget-inc-paths sprinkled everywhere over the makefiles because
otherwise it wouldn't be possible to build a development version on a system
that has a stable version installed.
