Yes, the lack of a server is why the 169.254 address would be automatically used, to save the trouble of statically assigning an address. I've not come across any clients or servers that won't work using such a setup; certainly sshd is fine with it.

You could just set them to DHCP and let bonjour find the 169.254 address that it would automatically get, no?

My Mavericks system has the standard C header files in /usr/include and many many more. I'm just guessing that these are installed as part of XCode and/or the command line tools.

Make sure you've installed XCode, and then install the CLI tools by running xcode-select --install from Terminal.
