Martin, et al.,

In one of our builds, there are a bunch of templated classes, templated functions, etc., etc.  The result is that the 'ld' part of building takes a long time now, as ld instantiates the templates appropriately.  As a result, we'd like to be able to do distributed ld-ing, so that the fastest available machine does the loading.  I think this would be possible -- we could gather up all the .o files on the build machine and send them over the wire to the compilation machine, which could do the loading and linking, and send the result back.

Do you see any problems with this?  Would it be easy, you think, to make this happen?  I think it would be mostly work in arg.c so make distcc recognize gnu ld arguments, etc.
