It's a standard feature, and it's there because it has a purpose.
I'm compiling for three systems, not using O= would be very inconvenient,
especially if done only to make klibc happy.

A clean tree won't do, you have to dirty it by starting a compile in order 
to get the required headers.

Thanks, you should probably mention that in the README.

To be more precise: The linux link has to point to
 - a linux directory which was used for compiling a kernel without O=
 - INSTALL_HDR_PATH after running 'make headers_install'
Error, no keyboard -- press F1 to continue.
