These are missing:

rpc/auth_des.h rpc/auth.h rpc/auth_unix.h rpc/clnt.h rpc/des_crypt.h 
rpc/key_prot.h rpc/pmap_clnt.h rpc/pmap_prot.h rpc/pmap_rmt.h rpc/rpc_des.h 
rpc/rpc.h rpc/rpc_msg.h rpc/svc_auth.h rpcsvc/bootparam.h rpc/svc.h 
rpcsvc/nis_callback.h rpcsvc/nis.h rpcsvc/nislib.h rpcsvc/nis_tags.h 
rpcsvc/ypclnt.h rpcsvc/yp.h rpcsvc/yp_prot.h rpcsvc/ypupd.h rpc/types.h 

also libtirpc built with glibc 2.14 ends up with few missing symbols


so at this moment there is no usable rpc implementation when using glibc 2.14
