it wasn't so difficult :)

"An implementation of XDR is required. This is part of RPC and
historically has been part of libc on a Unix-alike: however some
builds26 of glibc 2.14 hide it. The intention seems to be that the
TI-RPC library be used instead, in which case libtirpc (and its
development version) needs to be installed, and its headers need to be
on the C include path (and configure tries /usr/include/tirpc if the
headers are not found on the standard include path). The R sources
contain a simple implementation of XDR which in recent versions can be
used on platforms with 32-bit or 64-bit long (and earlier ones will
fail to compile unless long is 32-bit)."
