Could distcc installation include creating the masquerade directory, 

I'm using the Debian distcc 2.16-1 package. The distcc documentation 
recommends creating a masquerade directory in /usr/lib/distcc/bin. This 
directory is pretty important; I'd like to count on it wherever distcc 
is installed. Could the distcc Makefile please include a rule to create 
this directory?

The ccache install rule contains the following, to automatically create 
a masquerade directory:

         [ -d ${libdir}/ccache ] || mkdir -p ${libdir}/ccache
         ln -sf ../../bin/ccache ${libdir}/ccache/cc
         ln -sf ../../bin/ccache ${libdir}/ccache/gcc
         ln -sf ../../bin/ccache ${libdir}/ccache/c++
         ln -sf ../../bin/ccache ${libdir}/ccache/g++
         set -e; for ver in 2.95 3.0 3.2 3.3; do \
                 ln -sf ../../bin/ccache ${libdir}/ccache/gcc-$$ver; \
                 ln -sf ../../bin/ccache ${libdir}/ccache/g++-$$ver; \

I prepared a patch for the distcc Makefile, but the style of the 
Makefile is very sophisticated. The style of my patch isn't harmonious.
