[distcc] ip-based access control

I've just checked in to CVS a simple system for distccd access control
based on client IP.  It works from either inetd or standalone, and
should give some reassurance to people who run distcc on a
mostly-trusted network, behind some kind of firewall or ingress

Obviously this is not enough to protect against truly determined
attackers, including those who can spoof or snoop your network -- that
will have to wait for ssh transport.

Basically just

  distccd --allow

Please test -- it's in either CVS or a snapshot tarball.
