glibc deprecated all the Sun RPC stuff since quite some time. This is going to
be removed in Fedora 28 from glibc. SUSE will do the same, I don't know about
You can find some details here:
I'm working on checking and using libtirpc for our build. Also rpcgen will be
removed from glibc. There will be a new package providing it. Thorsten Kukkuk
from SUSE created a project for this: https://github.com/thkukuk/rpcsvc-proto
libnsl is the package which will provide NIS. Not sure if this will work just
fine as rpc/yp_prot.h is going to be removed from glibc too.
Does someone know the NIS stuff? Is that still in use?
