thanks for your advice!

but libtirpc 0.2.2 does not build with glibc 2.14!!

i get the same error as mentionned in


maybe a hint in the glibc chapter to use 2.13 if rpc is needed should be
added. as you can read in the comment, at least pam and nfs-utils won't
build, and both are a 'no go' for me!

i tried to build libtirpc just after zlib.

as the glibc maintainers dropped rpc-support and recommend to use
libtirpc there should be a patch somewhere, but i couldn't find it!
google didn't find a solution for me - i guess i'll stick with glibc
2.13 for a while...
