I think that a properly set-up distcc masquerades as gcc in the path and 
doesn't need any extra setup. That's how it is on my systems at least, and 
IIRC that's how PLD does it (I leeched their scripts).

There's a script in /etc/profiles.d that properly sets up MAKEFLAGS with 
number of distributed host CPUs.

Cheers, Kuba
