There seems to have been data corruption. The raid setup seems to be 
falling apart and the sysadmins are looking into it.

I reinstalled the packages for the header files i needed, and now nginx 
compiles with no problems.

The machine has been in production for years before i came here :P, and 
i'm trying to put some pressure to have their OS upgraded. Fingers 
crossed :P.

Thank you :)
