Nope, IIRC (*) programs which use that autoconf.h are broken and need to 
be fixed to search for the correct headers. If it needs autoconf.h then 
it needs to link against the current, running kernel, not the headers 
against which glibc was build. It should use the symlink in 
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/.

(*) Check the archives to be sure
