It should be *installed*, in line with the goal that building glibc for
any of the three x86 ABIs should install headers that can be used for any
of the three ABIs. But a #error in the header for ABIs not supporting it
would be reasonable. (Cf. my comment in bug 14117 about installing
sys/vm86.h for x86_64.)
