This is a problem with setting PATH indeed. Here is a typical server log 
just after starting distccd in verbose mode:

distccd[11415] (dcc_set_path) setting PATH=/usr/bin/X11:/usr/X11R6/bin
distccd[11415] distccd (version 2.1, built May 12 2003 11:26:27) 
listening on port 3632
distccd[11415] (dcc_standalone_server) 4 CPUs online
distccd[11415] (dcc_ignore_sighup) ignoring SIGHUP
distccd[11439] (dcc_parent_loop) waiting to accept connection

As you can see the PATH is wrong. The default PATH for root is:
and for some reason most of the path is discarded.

Any clues?
