Thanks Dan for your reply,
I create my Makefile with autoconf and automake tool.Most important
thing is it works fine with "make -k" and even "scons -k",but when I use
distcc with make and scons,sometime it works find and sometime it comes
after some errors.It is really difficult to find out the reason behind
this,as it stops somewhere in between sometime may be afte X no of
errors and sometime may be X+Y no of errors.

We can't really diagnose it from your description.
Worse yet, we can't imagine how this could be distcc's fault.

What's the minimal -j value where you observe the problem? What's the
simplest Makefile for which you observe the problem? Does the problem
happen with just Make (I don't trust scons as far as I can throw it :-)?
Can you post your Makefile (perhaps it has an error)?
