[Dune-devel] Alberta issues

For the rpc problem, I can give some hints. I had the same problem that 
rpc was not available on an HPC system out-of-the-box. On debian the 
necessary dependency would be libtirpc-dev (transport-independent RPC 
lib). It should be available on many architectures. Even on HPC Systems 
it is provided as manual loadable package. The configuration might need 
to set additional search paths for this library (and headers), though.

Alternatively, I'm fine with removing it from Alberta, at least it could 
be made an optional dependency. But this is probably some work.

The other problem is, that I had some trouble using recent autotools to 
create the configure scripts. Maybe this is easier to fix, but I'm not 
an expert in autotools.
