I'm using 3 prior submissions that haven't been dealt with yet:

 - Change host-options to trailing ",OPT" values (instead of infix

 - Enable masquerade-dir PATH-stripping in distccd (with the variable
   DISTCCD_PATH to let the power user force any PATH they like).

 - Added a QVER (version query) request.

I've created a slightly reworked version of the ,OPT changes.  I
removed the ",timeout=" stuff (that I never actually hooked up, but had
only included as a test of the option-parsing code).  I'm also not sure
if you liked the defines for LOCALHOST and LOCALHOST_LEN, so I left them
out in this version.

Here's were you can grab it:


The PATH-stripping patch and the QVER patch are basically the same as
before (just updated with the latest line offsets and context):


If you don't want to use the QVER change, at least fix the bug in
