If you really want to speed up gcc builds using distcc, you'll
eventually have to address the libgcj build.  In this case you'll
basically have to accept a shared directory structure.  A single
compilation in libgcj requires a lot of different files -- it isn't
like C where you can finesse the problem by running the preprocessor.
