[plt-scheme] stddef.h problem - building from SVN on Ubuntu 8.10 AMD64

This seems to be a new problem since my upgrade to Ubuntu 8.10:

I don't think it's a PLT problem.  I've googled enough to see non-PLT  
folks are having similar difficulties.  I'm just wondering if anyone  
has seen this before building PLT on Ubuntu 8.10.

I have build-essential, libc6, libc6-dev installed, and I can even see  
stddef.h under various gcc subdirectories, just apparently not where  
gcc is looking.
