Double thanks to Tom, David, Mantas, Squall, and all who responded. I now have 
a better appreciation for where my install is (no testing pkgs) and the /lib 
-> /usr/lib linking that I will expect in the future. As for the original 
rpcgen error, that is still in work and I'll keep digging.

I have a much better appreciation of all the hard work you guys put in keeping 
Arch the most current distro in use.
