 > Linking against xdr has been removed in order to get GRASS compiled on

 Linking against XDR has been removed because GRASS has its own XDR
 functions, and won't use the ones in libxdr (or libc) even if they're

 As for why GRASS stopped using XDR, Android support was basically the last
 straw. I had already needed to port BSD-XDR to Cygwin (which stopped
 shipping it in 2001), and the same issue would probably apply to any
 future platform.
