  Starting with the eglibc package version 2.13-5, the libraries are
  shipped in the multiarch directory /lib/$arch instead of the more
  traditional /lib. Similarly the includes are now shipped in
  /usr/include/$arch instead of the more traditional /usr/include.

  The toolchain in Debian has been updated to cope with that, and most
  build systems should be unaffected. If you are using a non-Debian
  toolchain to build your software and it is not able to cope with
  multiarch, you might try to pass the following option to your

    -B/usr/lib/$arch -I/usr/include/$arch

Does clang support similar options?

See also http://llvm.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=6541 which suggests to
me that upstream is interested in out-of-the-box support for the new

Reassigning to "general" and merging with the relevant bug, since this
is far from a libc-specific problem.  See [1] for some background.

Thanks and hope that helps,
