Well, no. I routinely build on a system where I don't have root
access and I don't have permission to change /usr/include/linux,
/usr/include/asm, or /usr/include/scsi.

The kernel compilation process already works correctly no matter
where the kernel tree is installed. The symlinks in /usr/include
are for compiling userland programs.
