I'll put more detail in future.
In this particular case though, the patch title gives you most info.
The header doesn't exist so the error message is the somewhat obvious:
../ports/sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/arm/ioperm.c:48:22: error: asm/page.h: No such file or directory
So to ease answering

There are reports of related issues with older glibc (2.7)
Not sure which version this one refers to.
For some reason the problem is still there despite (I think) the last one claiming
a check in to the glibc ports tree well before the 2.9 release.
(not sure if it was a branch or the mainline tree though).
Sorry for the lack of original info, the bug fix seemed so trivial I didn't bother
chasing down other references to it.
Anyhow, just after I sent this out, khem told me (on irc)
that the patch was already there for 2.4.
Alternate patch to follow shortly, please ignore original one.
Also the bug no longer exists at the head of the glibc tree.
