There is probably no such package.  The linux headers are part of the
linux kernel sources, and the glibc headers are part of the glibc
sources.  Both have convenient makefile targets so that you can install
the headers when starting a build.

Some distro vendors may extract out these headers into a separate
package for convenience.  In that case, you either get the package from
the distro vendor, or if they don't have the package you are looking
for, you make it yourself.

I'd suggest looking at Dan Kegel's crosstool package, which provides
scripts showing how to do a build from scratch.  There is a pointer to
it on the wiki.  See
