I have just complete a built by applying this minor modification. Maybe you can have a try. My klibc version is klibc-2.0.
It can be built, but I'm not sure if it will bring in some other issues into klibc! 
I have had the idea to build against the exported headers, but I hesitated and tried to have deeper look into it instead.

From IRC discussion, it is clear that you cannot build klibc against
the in-tree headers but must build it against the exported headers
made my installing the headers from Linux instead. (IIUC)

guy. But he's always right! In every fsckin' situation, he's right. Even
with his deeply perverted taste in software and borked ambition towards
broken OSes - in the end, he's damn right about it :(! […] works in mksh
