[distcc] Problems compiling KDE

I have a few machines running distcc to speed up KDE compiles. They 
are all the same architecture and all running the same distcc / CC 
versions.. gcc 3.2.3 and 2.0.1 from Debian. The compile goes smoothly 
(make CC=distcc CXX=distcc -j5) until I get the following error.
Whenever I encounter it I just run "make", until it gets past the 
error, then stop the build and rerun it with distcc.

Has anyone run into this before? The distcc homepage mentions that 
KDE compiles fine.
