"install-headers" is not the same as "install the headers needed for
bootstrapping"; it doesn't install all of those. Merging the
install-bootstrap-headers=yes support from EGLIBC (implemented by Jim
Blandy in 2007-02) is on my list of possible enhancements; note that
support already has an appropriate conditional for the sunrpc headers.
