> Actually, I think that we should consider fixing this in LFS by putting the Sun headers back until we get a stable TI-RPC, our a new glibc major. The other option I'd to add an RPC headers package of or own (taken from the glibc source...assuming that I understand correctly that the functionality is there in glibc, just the headers no longer are installed.

 I've seen reports that fedora re-enabled the functionality in glibc
(so, I guess they install the headers), but I can't access fedora
gitweb at the moment (not uncommon, it's always overloaded and times
out).  Works fine in 6.8 with the patched nfs bootscript ;-)
