[Buildroot] Insufficient RPC options for crosstool-ng toolchain

I'm getting an error about a missing rpc_msg.h while building 
conntrack-tools. That package selects libtirpc if 
!BR2_TOOLCHAIN_HAS_NATIVE_RPC. I'm having BR build the toolchain using 
ct-ng; I looked at the  toolchain-crosstool-ng/Config.in and it selects 
BR2_TOOLCHAIN_HAS_NATIVE_RPC because the ct-ng config that ships with BR 
uses glibc 2.9. My ct-ng config uses glibc 2.14, which doesn't have 
native RPC support.

I started to make a patch that allows for explicitly selecting 
BR2_TOOLCHAIN_HAS_NATIVE_RPC like the external-toolchain allows, but I 
ran across check_glibc function and the ext-toolchain-checked stamp and 
it looks like quite a lot, so I wanted to find out if you actually want 
all that for this fix.
