Thanks for your research. Please perform the following testsuite and 
tell us the results:

1) For every header that is also present in linux-libc-headers, the 
following one-line C file should successfully compile, even with 
-Werror, to an object file, with and without the -ansi switch:

#include <header.h>

2) Compile dosemu (maybe without X).
