     A, AP, D, and N should be enough to run circle.  Which header files
in particular were you missing?  Q only has a whole bunch of precompiled
kernels, which does nothing to help you.  The K set does have some header
files, but not any that are used by circle.  Please give some more detail
of your problem, perhaps a transcript of your attempted compile.
