Thanks for this new iteration. Did you test this on Fedora 28 ?

Because when I tried your first iteration, I did install rpc/types.h by
hand, but then the build failed again because another rpc/ header was
missing, and this is where I gave up.

I'll try to test your patch series on Fedora 28, but I'm a bit short on
time today for this.
