sorry wilson, I used the wrong reply button yesterday, I am sending to the 
distcc list now for archive reasons only.

dmake uses the MAXPROCESS environment variable I think, you will find out more
from the man page. I don't think the openoffice sources have the dmake man
page included, but google will find it for you.
