I forgot to mention our gcc and mozilla builds also use this function.
Although I have successfully built these packages with distcc many times
your playing with fire if you remove that function from the build. I
wouldn't recommend removing that function for your installfest, but if
you're on your own box and wanting to test it out by all means do so.
