Comment(by dj@…):

 Heh, I just recently stopped doing the above. Check the archives, this was
 first brought up in December of 2011. Despite the examples of the other
 distros, I think it's probably not a good idea now (even though I myself
 had suggested doing exactly this in the past) unless you want to go back
 and remove libtirpc from BLFS. At this point, we already have (just
 about?) everything in the book patched up to use libtirpc. If the glibc
 symbols are reexported, and a user installs libtirpc as a matter of course
 without being aware of the issue, it _might_ be problematic (I don't
 actually know, I haven't tried to really break anything in a while).
 Upstream developers were aware of these changes for some time prior, and
 should be well on their way to working this out.
