strstream.h is a C++ header file that comes with gcc usually.

Install the Glibc development headers. Those include the standard C
header files. Also try to look for something like stdc++ development
package or whatever you can find that includes the C++ headers. While
you're at it make sure kernel headers are installed as well.
