The normal setup on netwinder is the following links:

/usr/src/linux -> wherever your kernel sources are
/usr/include/linux -> ../src/linux/include/linux
/usr/include/asm -> ../src/linux/include/asm

We do not (currently) use the more modern idea of having 
/usr/include/linux and /usr/include/asm being directories, packaged as 
part of the glibc build process.

The binaries are in fact built from the src.rpm package... honestly! 
The problems you are seeing with missing headers will affect almost any 
software you try to compile on your netwinder - you really do need these 
headers installed.
