"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.
