* The RPC implementation in libc is obsoleted. Old programs keep working
but new programs cannot be linked with the routines in libc anymore.
Programs in need of RPC functionality must be linked against TI-RPC.

This turned out to cause tons of problems:

Having this sneaking suspicion I postet these lines of NEWS ... Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

Found there in the blog:
"... RPC would be fixed by relying on libtirpc. Ooh boy, how wrong I was. See the issue is this: libtirpc itself does not build on glibc-2.14, as it relies on one of the NIS/YP headers that has also been removed."

German verdict:
Wie krank ist das denn!

But, going through the buglist I have seen many fixed, even if not marked as fixed. But as a gentoo beginner I think I wait until someone of the devs catches glibc-2.14.1 into the tree and confirms busybox fixed ...
