13 In my testing I found that distcc is extremely unreliable at this
14 point. It might be a nice option to have available but I highly
15 reccomend not using it for bootstrap, etc. Even on things that look to
16 be compiling properly there have been some problems. This ws with 4
17 different versions of distcc so far, so just wanted people to be aware
18 of this.
