Do we need to build stage1 remotely, or would it be enough to run the
preprocessor and compiler stages separately for local compilations?
Perhaps a DISTCC_SPLIT_LOCAL option would help?

I suppose that wouldn't fix the gcc pwd embedded in the binary, but I
presume you either build without debugging or fix that some other way?
(Somebody said off the list that the pwd problem may be fixed in a
future gcc release.)
