You will need to do some integration between the RPC main loop and Gtk+
main loop. This would involve using the svc_pollfd information to get the
glib main loop to call a callback of yours, and then in that callback
calling svc_getreq_poll() or somesuch.

Alternately, you could use CORBA, which is a more modern version of the
same thing, and which has an implementation already well integrated into
and supported by GNOME.
