* The RPC implementation in libc is obsoleted.  Old programs keep working
  but new programs cannot be linked with the routines in libc anymore.
  Programs in need of RPC functionality must be linked against TI-RPC.
  The TI-RPC implementation is IPv6 enabled and there are other benefits.

  Visible changes of this change include (obviously) the inability to link
  programs using RPC functions without referencing the TI-RPC library and the
  removal of the RPC headers from the glibc headers.
  Implemented by Ulrich Drepper.
