I believe the de-facto replacement is here:


  This package contains rpcsvc proto.x files from glibc, which are
  missing in libtirpc. Additional it contains rpcgen, which is needed
  to create header files and sources from protocol files.
  This package is only needed, if glibc is installed without the
  deprecated sunrpc functionality and libtirpc should replace it.

It's what most distributions use, I believe.
