OK, I've found and installed popt (it is not
installed in a straightforward on Solaris by
the way, it would be better not to rely on a
library that is not very portable).

So distcc should link using:
	-lpopt -lnsl -lsocket
There must be autoconf scripts for -lnsl and
-lsocket. As for -lpopt, it is installed in
/usr/local. It would be nice to have an option
such as:

There's no such thing on most UNIX systems. This
looks like a GNUism.
