avr/io.h header files in the

try installing avr-libc and gcc-avr:
sudo apt-get install avr-libc gcc-avr
Then, to compile code for the AVR you need start by compiling it to an executable using: gcc-avr and then link it using avr-objcopy to create a hex file for the device:
avr-gcc -mmcu=atmegaX yourpgm.c -o yourpgm.elf
avr-objcopy -j .text -O ihex yourpgm.elf yourpgm.hex
Then, the hex file generated is the one to be installed on the device. You can use avrdude to import it. There are a lot more options that you can use for the compiler and linker, I suggest reading the man page for these tools; they are very helpful.
