I see.

It's not there. Must have been due to a typo on my part (I wonder how much more has been misplaced).

Slight problem here. I used locate in the chrooted environment, without env, so it used the regular locate-db - and reported the strstream.h of the RH install. Strstream does come with gcc though, so now I've a couple of compelling reasons to restart from scratch (I'll atleast learn to avoid these mistakes in the future <:).
