In addition:

distccd[9367] scanning arguments: aCC +DAportable +Z -c -w -P
./validators/schema/identity/XPathSymbols.cpp -o XPathSymbols.o
distccd[9367] found input file
distccd[9367] found object/output file "XPathSymbols.o"
distccd[9367] compile from XPathSymbols.cpp to XPathSymbols.o
distccd[9367] output file XPathSymbols.o
distccd[9367] input file ./validators/schema/identity/XPathSymbols.cpp
distccd[9367] turned on timeout for 30s
distccd[9367] got DOTI00004c56
distccd[9367] received 19542 bytes to file /tmp/distccd_8828accc.ii
distccd[9367] 19542 bytes received in 0.016054s, rate 1189kB/s
distccd[9367] changed input from
"./validators/schema/identity/XPathSymbols.cpp" to
distccd[9367] command after: aCC +DAportable +Z -c -w -P
/tmp/distccd_8828accc.ii -o XPathSymbols.o
distccd[9367] changed output from "XPathSymbols.o" to
distccd[9367] command after: aCC +DAportable +Z -c -w -P
/tmp/distccd_8828accc.ii -o /tmp/distccd_9d87accc.o

I found that except the *.ii suffix , the -P flag on the remote machine
shouldn't be used. I create with the -E flag on the local machine *.i
file (pre-compiled source) and then runs it with the following command:
aCC +DAportable +Z -c -w  test.i -o test.o
and I got a healthful object file ;-)
-P flag (from the aCC man) is 
		Preprocess named C++ files and leave the result in
                corresponding files suffixed with .i.
So, as I understand this flag shouldn't be used on the remote machine.
