Sorry about that, the "bug" in glibc I was referring to appears to
have been fixed. A while ago, building on powerpc would fail if
you had either -sparc headers or multiple kernel header packages
To me, the real bug is having N kernel header packages. I'm
assuming that they all describe the same binary kernel interface,
otherwise packages are forced depend on a particular type of
kernel header. And if they all describe the same binary kernel
interface, why do we need N of them?
