Welcome to the world of bootstrap problems.  You're right in that you
have to install the libc headers.  You can rip the from one of the
binary tarballs or rpms.  Put them into <prefix>/<target>/include/.
You'll also have to create the usual links asm and linux pointing
to a configured kernel source tree.  Finally you'll have to intall the
.o files from the tarball/rpm to <prefix>/<target>/lib/.
