That's an annoying quirk of the build process when there are missing 
headers, sorry.  It arises from some nasty interaction patterns between 
the bits of Makefile that autogenerate other bits of Makefile and empty 
header files.  It's not normally an issue since iPXE is self-contained, 
but it does arise when building the bin-*-linux targets.

 From testing, it looks as though Ubuntu installs the kernel headers in 
an unexpected place.  You may get it to work using:

   make EXTRA_CFLAGS=-I/usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu \
