This is because on most distributions /usr/include/asm and
/usr/include/linux are symlinks to the corresponding directories in
/usr/src/linux. So both are right: the kernel _is_ self-contained,
yet it fails to build on top of RH4.0 or any other distribution built
against the early glibc. The solution is easy though: replace the
symlinks with the actual contents of the relevant directories.
$ su # become root
$ rm /usr/include/linux /usr/include/asm
$ cp -a /usr/src/linux/linux /usr/include
$ cp -a /usr/src/linux/asm-alpha /usr/include
should work (but I didn't try the above commands, so don't follow
Another option would be to upgrade to the most recent glibc snapshot,
but I'm not sure to what degree this is recommended (unless you're a
