Problem compiling - rpcgen fails - 'Value too large'

I am attempting to compile glibc 2.2.3 and am having some difficulty.  I
have suitably modern tools as specified in the INSTALL file and am
compiling for Linux kernel 2.4.5 on an AMD K7.

Everything appears to go fine until a call is made to rpcgen to create
various RPC related files.  This crashes with 'Value too large for
specified data type' or something similar.

My understanding is that this error should only occur when accessing files
of the order of 3GB which obviously I'm not.  I also have more than
sufficient i-nodes on the disc so I can't imagine what is wrong.

Has anyone seen this before and if so can you suggest a solution.  If not I
will happily provide a more detailed copy of 'make' output.
