Yes, this has been reported previously.  It's because upstream Glibc no 
longer installs the rpc headers.  Upstream now expect folks to install 
libtirpc http://sourceforge.net/projects/libtirpc/).  That said, 
libtirpc itself depends on some of the Glibc rpc headers, or did last 
time I tried to install it.

Probably another issue to sort out before LFS-7.0 final (either put 
libtirpc or a pointer to it in the book).
