BTW, I reported a bug a while back that I believe is still extant in
rpcgen; it doesn't handle continuation lines (that is, likes that end
in '\') properly inside % quoted code. This is caused by the fact that
the original rpcgen depended strongly on the way sun's preprocessor
worked. GCC doesn't work the same way and unfortunately that breaks
the continuation line handling.
