Yes, the point is that cpio.h is in posix/, which is not one of the
directories searched by conformtest.
If cpio.h were used by any source file in glibc outside of posix/, the
same issue would apply for building that source file, and would be
resolved by having a trivial wrapper in include/ - like that for tar.h,
for example. So I think adding such a wrapper is the right solution for

I suppose the different configure options or compilers used for
configuring mean my compiler is searching the installed headers after
those in the source tree (I have a sysroot with an installation of glibc
as well as the kernel headers) and yours isn't.
