That's a bug. NOTHING in userland should compile against the source
tree. If you need a header file that's not installed, work with a src
developer to get that header installed.

No, it's a bug. *Nothing else cares*, nor is it legitimate to care.
/usr/src often does not match the running kernel, particularly in the
middle of an upgrade cycle.
