You should have these symlinks in your /usr/include:

asm -> ../src/linux/include/asm
linux -> ../src/linux/include/linux

Of course, you need the part of the linux kernel sources into which
they refer.  The kernel should probably be configured with 'make
config' or 'make xconfig' (just running the configuration program
should be enough).

Without these you'll have problems in compiling many other packages as
well. The files in /usr/src/linux should exist unless you have a very
customized version of RH 6.1.
