They are located under /lib/modules/linux-3.1.2-1.4-desktop. I have also created a symbolic link between /usr/src/linux and /lib/modules/3.1.2-1.4-desktop.

Any ideas ?
Header files under /lib? There must be something very strange on your system.
Headers here are under /usr/src/linux-3.1.4* and related subdirectories.

pc-aurora:/home/hmayer # cd /lib
pc-aurora:/lib # find . -name "*.h" -print
pc-aurora:/lib #
pc-aurora:/usr/src # find . -name "*.h" -print | more
./linux-3.1.9-1.4-obj/i386/desktop/include/config/dm/zero.h
./linux-3.1.9-1.4-obj/i386/desktop/include/config/dm/multipath/ql.h
./linux-3.1.9-1.4-obj/i386/desktop/include/config/dm/multipath/st.h
./linux-3.1.9-1.4-obj/i386/desktop/include/config/dm/delay.h
./linux-3.1.9-1.4-obj/i386/desktop/include/config/dm/raid.h
etc.
I would advise you make sure you really have system sources installed and installed into the correct places.
Sorry I can't be more specific but that would be my first guess: incomplete or not correctly installed sources.
