Add rpcsvc-compat and libnsl
|Reported by:||Owned by:||DJ Lucas|
It looks as if the removal of old rpc from glibc might now be possible. There is a release of libnss_compat at https://github.com/thkukuk/libnss_compat/releases - should work with ipv6, the old glibc (sun) code is ipv4 only.
This needs to be tested both for client and server, as well as reviewing if it can be cleanly installed over the old stuff from glibc. AFAICS no distros (except possibly OpenSuse) are using it at the moment, probably because it has not been well publicised (I saw that the old NIS code in glibc is now separated out, found a link to the proposal, and from that a pointer to the revised nis lib by the same SuSe developer, then I found this on his github page).
Not urgent, but if it works then we can drop the old rpc stuff from glibc.
