thanks for jumping in, sorry I seem to have confused you.
belows needed fixes got added in similar forms, updated the debian repo,
merged in todays 1.5.16 release.

so to reproduce the debian trouble:
git clone git://git.debian.org/git/kernel/klibc.git klibc-debian
cd klibc-debian
debuild -B -us -uc

I don't see how we can get around the headers_install target,
it was added on purpose as previous header installing was
quite fragile see 
git log scripts/Kbuild.install
