Using CXX="distcc g++" will result in that.  Using masquerading will

Thus, a full solution is already in place in the latest release of
distcc -- just create a dir (such as /usr/lib/distcc/bin) and put
symlinks into it (for cc, gcc, c++, g++, etc.) that point to distcc, add
that directory to the start of the PATH, set DISTCC_HOSTS, get a -j#
option to gnu make somehow (perhaps by setting MAKEFLAGS, perhaps by
just running "make -j5"), and a normal KDE compile will work with distcc
as it should.  I've done this with three releases of KDE so far, and it
works great.
