kernel module krpc required for zfs on amd64, but not needed on ia64?

On ia64 to get zfs I only need to have
makeoptions     MODULES_OVERRIDE="opensolaris zfs"
in the kernel config:

# kldstat
Id Refs Address            Size     Name
 1    9 0xe000000004000000 cc6688   kernel
 2    1 0xe000000004cc8000 1ff4a8   zfs.ko
 3    2 0xe000000004ec8000 14b60    opensolaris.ko

On amd64 it seems one also needs krpc kernel module:

	KLD zfs.ko: depends on krpc - not available or version mismatch

Is this expected?

Perhaps on ia64 krpc is included via some other
kernel config option?

many thanks
