Actually, Stephane setup distcc here.  Unfortunately it doesn't help
me all that much, because linking is what takes a large part of my
time (because I'm making incremental changes and because I insist on
compiling with -g).

I have to say though I was very impressed with how easy to use distcc
is.  Nice job!

(BTW: still waiting for someone to tell me I need a 64-way SuperDome
to get my kernel compiles done... ;-)
