Well, not with the make file but with your system. On our RedHat Linux
boxes, both asm/sigcontext.h and linux/limits.h are in the rpm
kernel-headers-*, so I suggest you try installing that. However, again on
our systems, glibc-devel requires kernel-headers. So either Caldera have
got their dependencies wrong (and we have encountered missing files on
Caldera systems before) or you did not allow dependencies to be installed.

rpm -q --requires glibc-devel

to see if kernel-headers is a dependency. I vaguely recall there are ways
to check for any missing required packages on RPM-based systems, but as I
have never had need of them, I can't recall the details.
