What!? Kernel header files too old?
I have gotten up to chapter 6 section 11 when I get this message:

checking installed Linux kernel header files... TOO OLD!
configure: error: GNU libc requires kernel header files from Linux 2.0.10 or later to be installed before configuring. The kernle header files are found usually in /usr/include/asm and /usr/include/linux; make sure these directories use files from Linux 2.0.10 or later. This check uses <linux/version.h>, so make sure that file was build correctly when installing the kernel header files....
I went back and made sure that I followed the steps in 6.9 correctly. I looked at the info in /usr/include/linux/version.h and it says UTS_RELEASE "2.6.8"

Any ideas of what I did wrong and how to correct it? TIA!

The test program configure uses to get the version number did not compile for some reason, and configure thinks it is caused by too old headers. The compiler error message should be in config.log.

The quoted text is the error message that it gives.
