I know this PR is closed but I wanted to make sure this got into the
The bug here is actually an rpcgen bug from FreeBSD 5.x and up; the main
RPC program function is always emitted 'static' but the header file
declares all functions, including that one, as 'extern'. This changed
between 4.x and 5.x -- previously the 'extern' declaractor was not
emitted at all.
I've submitted a bug report for rpcgen; I don't know if that means we
can remove this patch once rpcgen is fixed, since it has been "broken"
since early in 5.x.
