Hi Manolis,

Thanks for dealing with this, and for persevering, despite the difficult
situation.  Think of you as a pioneering explorer.  ;-)

This is terrible.  (This was actually easier when I packaged it in
Nixpkgs, before libpthread was made a glibc add-on.)

Samuel’s suggestion to install glibc headers just to be able to build
libihash & co. seems to be the easiest one.

Could you try making a ‘glibc-headers’ package whose build phase does
nothing and whose install phase does ‘make install-headers’?
