Ah ha!  therein lies the issues.  distcc wasn't being used for the link jobs. 
changed that, and now things are much happier!  thanks.  for some reason i
didn't think distcc limited local jobs at all currently, so i didn't think to
look at the actual link command.

thanks again.
ps-great application!
