Should have been more clear on this...   The libc6-dev package installed
headers into /usr/include.  The licb5-altdev package installed headers into
/usr/i486-linuxlibc1/include.  the kernel-source package installed headers
into /usr/src/include.  I'm wondering if these are duplicates of each other.
I imagine the libc5 stuff is old, the libc6 stuff replaced it - but is the
kernel-source stuff the same as the libc6 stuff?
