Hmm.  It's really a bug to build the new libraries with the new system
headers until a new kernel is installed.  The new systems headers really
belong to the new kernel, not to the library.  However, the library
probably depends on new features in them...

This shows that building and running a new kernel first is more likely
to be right than building a new world first.  Therefore, it is important
for tools needed to build the new kernel to be portable.  config is much
simpler than it used to be and could easily be portable.
