Hello Bruce,

I ran across this in our CLFS multilib builds when during 32 bit  
eglibcbuilds, it is cross compiling using a 64 bit host and thus it  
puts glibc/eglibc in a bad state and thus using internal rpc headers  
is required when they are not available on the host. That's why I  
suggested that earlier in the thread.

You will not encounter this when not cross compiling at all.
