   Linux with glibc 2.1 (Debian potato).

   $ dpkg --search stropts
   libc6-dev: /usr/include/bits/stropts.h
   libc6-dev: /usr/include/sys/stropts.h
   libc6-dev: /usr/include/stropts.h

   I haven't checked the complete list of include files you posted earlier
   but it lacks at least /usr/include/{asm,bits,linux}.

   I assume you need to install the libc development package.

That effectively did it, although since it was simply called libc, I'm
a bit confused as to exactly what it *did* do, since (presumably) I
already had libc installed:

# rpm -Uvh libc.rpm 
package libc-99.4.14-0 (which is newer then libc-2.1.1-4) is already installed

What's more interesting is that most other things *have* compiled just
fine.  In any event, thanks.
