I have MATLAB 2019b but not simulink installed on my computer (ubuntu 16.04). When trying
mex(fullfile(matlabroot, 'extern', 'examples', 'refbook', 'timestwo.F'));
I got the following
warning: f951: Warning: Nonexistent include directory 'MATLABROOT/simulink/include' [-Wmissing-include-dirs]
where MATLABROOT represents the root path of matlab on my computer. Nevertheless, the resultant timestwo.mexa64 works without any problem. I suppose simulink is not needed at all for timestwo.
I am writing a script for mexifying a few Fortran functions of my own, and the same warning pops up inevitably. However, my functions do not rely on simulink in any way. How could I suppress this warning?
Thank you very much!

In case needed (even though not likely), here is the output of mex -v -setup FORTRAN. It containts nothing strange and nothing related to simulink.

Usually you could just pass a compiler option that would disable this warning, but a bug in gfortran causes the -Wno-missing-include-dirs option not to work.
The only other way to remove this warning is to stop mex from trying to include that directory. Open your mex_FORTRAN_glnxa64.xml file, find the part starting with "INCLUDE=" and remove the following:
-I"$MATLABROOT/simulink/include"
