klibc didn't build against 2.6.28 because some asm headers are now in 
arch/x86/include/ instead of include/asm-x86/. I added a quick-fix to 
the Makefile so klibc would build. However, I forgot that these headers 
weren't installed either, so now klcc does not compile anything that 
needs any of those headers (I didn't notice because I didn't have to 
recompile the klibc-* packages). This means: klibc works as a runtime 
library, but klcc is useless.

klibc has released a new version, but this was not fixed (however, the 
ext4 detection was fixed by Theodore Ts'o himself, so this is probably 
better than what I did).
