Thanks!

Hope distros will backport the fix soon.

Can you please either ack this patch or request we detect authdes support
support (i.e. libtirpc < 1.2.5) and keep tests in this case?
(I'd be for removing these tests, but if you consider them useful for testing,
I'll do the detection).

Kind regards,
Petr
