configure extension include files for compilation

What is the best way to configure the files of our extension so that when in compilation mode, the required dependencies
can be located in the /Include/src directory?  We place our files in the default/app/code/local directory, and when in compilation mode, the files are renamed and placed into the default/include/src directory as this Original_file_location_fileName.php

An example, we have PHP files that call Require_once like this:

require_once(dirname(__FILE__) . “/RequiredFileName.php");

When our extension is run in compilation mode, the dependencies cannot be found. it is looking for the old file name and not the renamed filename in the local directory (include/src).

Can anyone help with a solution to this problem?
