Obsolete rpc headers not needed in /tools

Reported by: chris@… Owned by: lfs-book@…
Priority: low Milestone: 7.10
Component: Book Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


For Glibc, the book currently uses --enable-obsolete-rpc in both Chapter 5 and Chapter 6, to install several rpc header for some packages that might need them. I've done several builds now without this option, and it appears it is not needed, at least in /tools and possibly not in Chapter 6 as well. There might be some packages in BLFS or elsewhere that I don't use that still need those headers, but I haven't seen any problems from leaving them out.

In any case, the obsolete rpc headers do not appear to be needed for anything in a base LFS system, so --enable-obsolete-rpc should not be needed at least in Chapter 5.

When I updated instructions for GCC5, the RPC was required for it. Some part would fail. Are you sure that's not the case nowadays?

Even if current gcc does not need them, packages in BLFS such as the nfs stack will still need them, so removing them from chapter 6 would not be a good idea.

This is about chapter 5, not 6.

I was referring specifically to

and possibly not in Chapter 6 as well
