This guide has at least one error and several bad recommendations.
Anyway, I wouldn't recommend make install'ing from source if you
can have an RPM. See the official site for Fedora RPMs.

And it's not. Though I haven't checked recently, I've never had any

And what is this "./compile", pray tell?

I'd guess you have a symlink to /usr/src/linux/include in
/usr/include/linux, which is very bad, because it should contain
the headers your glibc was compiled with:
$ ls -ld /usr/include/linux
drwxr-xr-x 12 root root 12288 Jul 4 2004 /usr/include/linux
$ rpm -qf /usr/include/linux
You should have glibc-kernheaders package installed properly instead
(and if you don't, you have a broken system).
