Thanks, I'll make a note of that on the RPM site. The underlying reason 
here is that GCC's rpc interface was removed after a long deprecation, 
in favor of libtirpc. It was easier to simply test for that and move 
forward on use. This will also be necessary for 4.4 (IPv6) and was the 
main cause of the recent Fedora FTBFS's.
