Yes indeed.  That's a running flamewar in Linux circles....  There are
lots of problems caused by using symlinks for /usr/include/linux et al,
and this is one of them.  Debian gets it right -- libc puts *no*
symlinks in /usr/include, just copies of the files it was compiled with
-- but I guess a lot of distributions still get it wrong....
