[distcc] Specifying compiler for distcc?

I also use a full pathname -- but it is the pathname of a shell script that analyzes which kind of platform the machine is (linux, solaris, cygwin) and then runs the compiles from the correct place for that platform.

(I can post that really simple little script, if anyone is interested.)

Yup.  I even use absolute pathnames to invoke the compiler;
that works well (as long as the compilers are installed at the
same place on both client and server).
