Nowadays, unlike in Feb. 2013, linux-libre-headers is a “propagated
input” of glibc: when glibc is installed in a profile,
linux-libre-headers is automatically installed as well.  So there
shouldn’t be any problems.

However, instead of installing the ‘glibc’ package, you may want to
install the ‘gcc-toolchain’ package, which provides all the tools needed
to do software development (GCC, libc, Binutils, the ‘ld wrapper’, etc.)

Can you report back?
