Actually I fixed that in CVS yesterday night before you wrote.  (Sorry
to waste your time :-/).  My change doesn't check argv[0], which I
think is better because doing so is a bit problematic.  

It is a step about halfway towards being able to call distcc
"~/bin/gcc", and then have it call "gcc.real".

No, it works fine.  That's what I mean by saying it supports C++.

By the way, C++ // comments don't work in some C compilers, so it's
best to avoid them in C programs.
