The point of the Makefile is that you don't need to move headers around 
- like it says in the README:

"A Makefile.arch is created for each architecture you install
with the correct paths and libraries. You will have to link
(or copy) the correct makefile to "Makefile" or use the -f
option to gmake in order to select a makefile."

So do "make -f Makefile.x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu" like it says :-)
