There is a more serious problem than the filename in doing C++
compilation under Sun CC.  That is that Sun CC apparently cannot
correctly compile C++ templates when the file is preprocessed
separately from compilation.  There is not much distcc can do to fix

Ask the Sun compiler team to fix this issue, or use GNU g++.
