Let me know if you can reproduce it, particularly if you can get a
verbose log out.

OK, distcc (in arch head, will be 2.18.4) now runs anything with -d
locally.  This will at least make it correct.  Bringing the debug
output back from the remote machine will require a protocol change.
(Is it really worth it?  How many people do all their builds with
compiler debugging turned on?)
