[distcc] solved local distribution problem

For anyone interested, my problem recently with jobs not distributing 
(noticed on 2.18.1) was in fact my own error.
My CFLAGS got partially polluted by my LDFLAGS (adding -s to CFLAGS)
 which made distcc test for servers listed in /etc/distcc/hosts, but then run 
the job locally ( -s forces distcc to use local compilation [0]). 
I found the problem intermittently popping back up, so taking Martin's advice 
I set client and server into verbose logging mode and found the answer in the
 verbose client log.

Thanks Martin. 
I hope no-one else is silly enough to suffer the same problem now.
