Thanks for pointing that out.  I didn't know about '.include'.

As far as I can see, gas accepts .include lines in both .S and .s
files.  The case of the extension seems to just control whether gcc
feeds the file to cpp, which will have no effect on '.include' lines.
Therefore presumably distcc should do neither .s nor .S remotely?

It would probably be strange to have somebody write a .S file which
had both #include and .include lines in it, but I suppose it might

For C or C++ files, distcc runs both the compiler and the assembler
remotely, so .s files generated internally by gcc need not worry us.
