Why don't you just extract the header files from the glibc and kernel
RPMS?  Actually, to be useful, you'll need the libraries too.  But
those are also available in the RPM.  (When you install these RPMS,
you'll want to use the --root option to cause the RPM to be installed
at a different location than normal.  You might also need the
--ignorearch option.)
