If you wish to use the 'client' to compile for other machines it must be
started.  Remember, one client is another machine's server.

No. Distcc-config reads from /etc/env.d/02distcc, not the environment.

That depends how you wish to configure your network. For each machine
decide what other machine(s) you wish to use in compilation.
