Ubuntu Lucid, all headers installed:
$ dlocate /libc.h
$ dlocate byteorder.h|grep sys/                              
$ dlocate sys/strredir.h                                     
$ dlocate strredir.h                                         
$ dlocate sys/sockio.h                                       
$ dlocate sockio.h                                           
$ dlocate sys/stropts.h                                      
libc6-dev: /usr/include/sys/stropts.h

In other wordds, the vast majority are not present on a standard Linux system.
And <sys/stropts.h> contains only this:

#include <stropts.h>
