By the way, this is *exactly* why we do not ship any distcc-enabled
LiveCD images. We'd have to make a new CD for every version of gcc we
have laying around the tree.
Perhaps instead, you would do better to build a CD that has all of the
components for a Windows-based distcc, as they don't require access to
the registry, or really to be installed. You can use cygwin/gcc/distcc
on Windows, you know.
At any rate, this would probably belong over on gentoo-releng or
