Ok, so if they really don't support hyper, then I've two final ideas,
the first of which will definitely work, but requires some coding on
our part. we define a new type

   typedef remote_int64 int[2];
   typedef remote_uint64 unsigned int[2];

and then replace all use of hyper/unsigned hyper with remote_int64
and remote_uint64. And define our own code to marshall this on/off
the wire. We'd merely have to take care to get the 2 bytes in the
correct order to match the current definition of hyper.

Other option is to not re-run rpcgen on Mac, and simply try and define
an impl for that missing  _xdr_quad_t function symbol so it links.

The latter might be simpler, but is a slightly evil hack..
