no I never solved that one(got sidetracked)
from what had happened here is this .h file
wasn't the only one mysteriously missing
on my system at the time.
Either header files were being removed
when I installed the nvidia driver(during install time nvidia
removes conflicting files), or it was another application I had
installed and then uninstalled that removed some important header files
(could'n t compile gcc, nor libc or much of really anything)

So it's just a simple sh ./autogen.sh  that restores the header.
