Others (I checked Fedora, and I think gentoo did it too) did the
switch years ago (circa 2018). They have a master bug[1] which might
be worth checking if someone is looking for patches.

I briefly tried building squid's NIS auth helper with tirpc when
trying to sort out its ftbfs[2]. It worked, but for reasons outlined
in the bug[2] and the WIP branch[3] which I didn't propose, I decided
to drop the NIS auth helper. Other than some annoying autoconf issues,
it seemed to work just fine, but I didn't have a real NIS domain to

Of note is that the final binary wasn't directly linked with tirpc,
but pulled it in via libnsl.
