Oh, right.  I had forgotten about that.  Any version of glibc that
comes with setcontext()/getcontext() should have a correct ucontext.h,
but we didn't implement those routines until quite late in the game.
If I recall correctly, they were first supported by glibc-2.2.3, but
there were some nasty bugs, so I think you pretty much have to use
glibc-2.2.4 or newer.
