I already sent an RFC about two months ago:

I was suggesting to possiblities:
 - treat RPC as a system feature
    -> we need to add TIRPC to the build
 - treat RPC as a non-system feature
    -> applications that need RPC should depend on TIRPC

But TIRPC is not yet complete, so it is not yet a proper replacement.

The resolution *so far* is, for crosstool-NG:
 - we don't care

If the user requires RPC, then (s)he should use 2.13 or before.

That could well change over time, but one pre-requisite is that TIRPC gets
mature enough to be a proper replacement.

I'd refer you back to my original post for more info
