Thanks to everyone who replied. The problem has been sorted
and I am busy recompiling my new kernel.
The problem was indeed the glibc-devel*.rpm wasn't installed.
When I tried to install it it said that the kernel headers package
was needed, I was sure that was already installed so I tried to
reinstall it and it confirmed that it was already installed, anyway
removed it, reinstalled it, installed the glibc-devel*.rpm created
all the symbolic links everyone told me to make and
roberts your mothers brother.
Thanks again to everyone.

Check that you have glibc-devel (the rpm) installed. That has all the
standard include files (IIRC).
[lbedford at slate lbedford]$ rpm -q -f /usr/include/ctype.h
