You wrote it some strins below.

All is OK.

[s0mbre@Sombre /tmp]$ gcc ./test1.c -o ./test1
[s0mbre@Sombre /tmp]$ cat ./test1.c
#include <asm/current.h>
int main()
[s0mbre@Sombre /tmp]$

I have no problem.
But if i would have this problem, i
a) rewrite include dir and check symlink
b) reinstall system :)
