glibc - compile errors

Hi !
I try to compile LFS 5.1.1
There is a problem with glibc
Errors arises in the catalogue /sunrpc
Problem with the module rpcgen.
I received next error message after glibc compiling :

./glibc-build/ : undefined reference to '__GI___sysctl' collect2:
ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: ***[/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-build/sunrpc/rpcgen] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory '/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-2.3.3-lfs-5.1/sunrpc'
make[1]: ***[sunrpc/others] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-2.3.3-lfs-5.1'
make: ***[all] Error 2

Host distrib - Fedora .

There is one more problem with compilation glibc.
The package glibc-2.3.3-lfs-5.1 includes many subdirectories - I has calculated about 70.
When the error occurs at a finishing stage of compilation glibc -for example, in subdirectory sunrpc in my case - the following compilation takes away a lot of time.
Can I selectively compile glibc?
Whether 'make' has an option for compilation of selective subdirectories?
Can I force 'make' do not compile /sunrpc?

Excuse me for my English :-)
