That just means some packages use the -no-stack-protection option,
and some don't.

When using distcc, the glibc for the server compiler shouldn't matter (much?)
so you ought to be ok.

If you want to be certain, you might
want to use crosstool to build the compiler used on the
distcc client side, too.  But that might not mesh well with gentoo,
which you seem to be trying to build.

You can't run linux executables on cygwin
