Okay, it is confirmed. I assumed it had something to with the minimal
gcc-compiler, but it is not.
Very easy to reproduce on my Debian Squeeze.

Download and unpack glibc-2.14.1.tar.xz. Create a out-of-tree
build-directory. Run configure. Output as follows:
../glibc-2.14.1/configure --prefix=/usr
make install-headers install_root=/var/tmp
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/solskogen/temp/glibc-2.14.1/signal'
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 signal.h /usr/include/signal.h
/usr/bin/install: cannot remove `/usr/include/signal.h': Permission denied
make[2]: *** [/usr/include/signal.h] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/solskogen/temp/glibc-2.14.1/signal'
make[1]: *** [signal/install-headers] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/solskogen/temp/glibc-2.14.1'

I'll submit a bug report.
