Overall I think this is not the best spot to start streamlining. Nice 
and maintainable code makes it easy to spot later one when something is 
done non-default way - and warning on non-existent include file is a 
reasonable default.

But if you really want to do it, I can come up with two ways.

1. @include($incfile);
You won't get any errors from the $incfile either - which may not be 
what you'd want.

2. Write your own error handler[0] and test if the error message 
contains text "[function.include]" and only log if it doesn't. This 
might require some tweaks with your error logging that I can't think of now.
