I'm doubtful that make was trying to include sys/cdefs.h. I certainly
never ran into this issue when building it. It may try ar.h, but
configure should really be detecting the presence or absence of these.
Are you trying to use a make source tree that was already configured
for glibc?

This is definitely wrong, in general. If a program is trying to
include a header that doesn't exist, the first thing you try should be
just removing the #include line. :-)
