I should say that distcc doesn't care about versions at all.  It is
just a matter of which versions of gcc produce output that is mutually

In general I think there should be no changes other than bug fixes
between 3.2.2 and 3.2.1, so they should work together fine.

Unless emerge does something very strange, it will be seen by all
compiler invocations launched from that point on.

Somebody is working on a nice runtime interface for doing this but
they don't want to announce their work yet.
