This might also be interesting as a solution to -MD: if we kept the
file basename the same, and put it in its own directory, then we ought
to reliably get the .d files in that directory too.  distcc might then
try moving them to the right place.

The problem is that "the right place" varies with different gccs, and
therefore is probably unpredictable.
