Turns out it was pilot error. The patches needed a little tweaking, but
the main thing was that I didn't fully follow the instructions. You must
point the include search at the includes for the target! I did that, and
now it works fine. A kernel compiled fine, and a few libraries have worked
also. The results of a make build awate at home.

Take care,
