Yes, I learned that now, too, even after fixing some functions
and adding missing compat functions, there are still quite a lot
of small, but important changes. Especially the naming of variables
in structs :(

Is there somewhere a list or something similar with the biggest problems
found out when tryint to disable sunrpc in glibc by default?
With my latest TI-RPC patches, I only see two remaining problems, 
both not solveable and needs adjustement in the applications:
1. programs trying to hook into svc_run().
2. different naming of some variables.

The later may be solveable with some defines.
