[distcc] Distcc binary on OS X different to OpenDarwin source
list at gaialink.dyndns.org

I'm not sure that this is the correct list - I've looked through the
archives and can't find any posts referring to this problem, but you
seem to deal with these kinds of issues.
I'm trying to set up a distccKnoppix-PPC installation on an x86 box to
compile binaries to run under OS X. I want to use XCode to do this.
The problem is that XCode uses gcc's -x parameter to specify the type of
source file (ie. .cpp gets a -x cxx flag).
The stock distcc doesn't handle this (grep arg.c for "handling" to see
the error message "gcc's -x handling is complex; running locally").
The opendarwin distcc-17.tar.gz source also doesn't handle it.
The Apple-supplied binary on my OS X Panther (confirmed on 10.3.4,
10.3.5) *does* handle it.
Looking through the binary, the error string is still there - but the
check appears to not be taking place. (My disassembly skills are not
really up to the task of doing a proper analysis!).
So, is this a GPL violation? Am I just using the wrong source? Is there
a magic build option I don't know about?
Any answers, hints or pointers gratefully recieved.
