klibc is a C library. The kernel headers in the kernel *source* tree
are only for use to compile a kernel. Since several versions, there
is an *installed* form of the kernel headers, which you use to compile
C libraries and other userspace against.

Then install it to ~/installed-kernelheaders/ or something.

[...] if maybe ext3fs wasn't a better pick, or jfs, or maybe reiserfs, oh but
what about xfs, and if only i had waited until reiser4 was ready... in the be-
ginning, there was ffs, and in the middle, there was ffs, and at the end, there
was still ffs, and the sys admins knew it was good. :)  -- Ted Unangst über *fs
