Thanks for the answer Vic. I will definitely look into that a bit more.
Does anyone else know what these jam specific settings might be?

Perhaps jam is like cons/pcons/scons -- the environment that comes from
the shell is NOT used -- so that the build is environment-independent.
If this is the case, then perhaps some environment variable you have in
your shell needs to be defined in your jamfile?  This is just a guess,
but it is what we have to do in our cons/pcons/scons *Conscript files.

	Hi Dan,
	Thanks for the quick reply.
	Maybe I should elaborate more about my environment and success
so far :)
	I have 3 nodes in my test environment right now. I have distcc
	configured and working quite well with all the code I throw at
it. Well,
	almost all code... When I add Jam to the mix, things just stop
	for me, and the processes are all running on the original node. 
	Any advise?

	You could start by setting DISTCC_VERBOSE=1 on the client
	side. Be sure to start with the most trivial test case you can,
	e.g. compiling a hello, world app by hand using distcc;
	once that works, try the same thing with Jam.
