Are you sure you looked in ALL the include files? I seem to have it as:

/usr/include/bits/resource.h:typedef __rlim_t rlim_t;

where __rlim_t is

/usr/include/bits/types.h:typedef long int __rlim_t;

so you could try including those two in the appropriate places.

I have this:

/usr/include/bits/syscall.h:#define SYS_capset __NR_capset

Hope that helps (although l-k probably isn't the best place for this...)
