[distcc] Patch to distccmon-text (a.k.a, mon-text.c)

I'm using distcc to set up my gentoo servers at home, and man it's awesome!
(Wish I didn't have such flakey hardware, that I have to restart it all the
time, but that's another matter.. :)).

Anyhow, I'm quite a fan of the console, so I put together a tiny patch to
make the distccmon-text output look a little nicer. Basically this is what
it does:

*.- Refrains from printing out a newline, if nothing new was displayed
(different compiler 'batches' are still separated by spaces, tho').
*.- Prints the time/date. 

So, pretty simple - ideally I suppose there should be command line options
to toggle some of these on and off, but I figured some people might like
this, as I know I have!

Anyhow, to apply this patch, run patch -Np1 [path-to-"mon-text.c"]

Save the following output to a file, something like
distcc-2.16-nicer-output.patch, and use it as the second parameter to the
above command.

If there's any questions, suggestions, comments, let me know (I'm not on
this list, so please e-mail me directly. eparker @ freeshell . org).

If I get the time, I'm thinking an ncurses-based monitor would be nice..
Something to toggle these settings easily, etc.

(I by no means say my code is the be-all-end-all... :) No warranties, etc,
etc. :))

Here's the patch, copy everything between the lines:
