glibc now supplies these (compatible) structs instead of including

cause new elfutils to FTBFS on old glibc, and vice versa, but that seems
unavoidable in the growth of a new port, and the workaround of checking
for header defines and defining one to the other seems unpleasant as
well. Therefore, bite the bullet, and let packaging systems alter their
build requires accordingly.
That is indeed annoying, but using the glibc defined structs seems to be
the right thing to do. Do you know which glibc version introduced them?
BTW. For this trivial patch it doesn't really matter, but in general we
like to have a Signed-off-by line for all patches to indicate
contributors know about and agree with our CONTRIBUTING guidelines.
Would you mind adding one?
