Since upgrading from distcc-2.0.1 to distcc-2.1 we keep geeting such 
errors and distributed compilations fail:

gcc: installation problem, cannot exec `as': No such file or directory

We're running distcc on 25 Red Hat Linux 7.3 machines, most of them 
being dual-Pentium Dell machines (with hyperthreading enabled which 
means they're actually seen as quad-processor machines).

With distcc-2.0.1 all our distributed compilations run smoothly. With 
distcc-2.1 or distcc-2.2 we occasionally see the above error message. 
Every single machine has been checked: '/usr/bin/as' is in the path and 
we are able to build C/C++ programs on every machine.

Is there any way to find which machines the failed compilation was sent to?

Any ideas on how to debug this issue? Any other clues?
