Heya. I noticed no one replied to this.

I saw a git commit about this. It implements same feature that first Dj 
and then I offered as patch. It does not only install rpc headers, but 
it also reexports RPC interface so programs can use it as it always did 

I remember the git log said something like "Add option to enable RPC 
interface untill libtirpc is fully capable to take over."

We use libtirpc in BLFS for few packages and it works, but I'll still 
like to use this one, since libtirpc still requires RPC headers and NIS 
interface (we provide a patch to remove it).
