It's required to be in limits.h, which has to be provided by libc for a full implementation. Hypothetically, we could get it from the Linux headers. But the Linux headers can and sometimes do introduce definitions and structs that violate the header namespaces, resulting in collisions (ie, kernel header defines struct foo, application defines struct foo without including any headers that *should* define it, application fails to compile.)
