True, but there are packages where the header files aren't setup
properly until you tell some program/script to setup the header files.
This could be an issue with the kernel's case. Certain header files
don't even exist until after you have run a make
config/menuconfig/whatevberconfig. From that and other things I have
seen with the kernel it can be that because the kernel isn't configured
for SLIP, the header files may not be setup properly yet. I can't verify
that, it's a hunch, but it does make sense if you think about it.
