[Halld-offline] New version sets to address slow hdgeant4 jobs

There have been several reports of strange behavior with RPC and
hdgeant4 over the past day or so. I've built some new version sets to
try and address the issue. Unfortunately, there is a bit of speculation
here (see below) and I am not sure that these new version sets will
solve problems folks have been seeing, but the changes are small and I
think they are worth a try.
New, recommended version sets
version_4.26.0.xml is now the default at JLab
Old, deprecated version sets
Please try to avoid using these.
The recent use of libtirpc to replace RPC calls needed by ROOT is
suspected to be causing large number of RPC calls. This replacement was
part of the work to make our software compatible with future
distributions, those beyond our current default of CentOS 7.7. So the
new version sets simply drop the use of libtirpc when building hdgeant4
to see if that is what is causing the problem.
