Ouch!  There's a workaround that worked for me which is to copy
rpcsvc/{nis,nis_tags,nislib}.h from the glibc-2.14 source tarball into /usr/include/rpcsvc.

Well, by 'worked for me', it finished the 'make' invocation.  I've not bothered installing
or trying to use libtirpc though.  It'd be interesting if you could find out whether glibc
or libtirpc should be providing those headers!
