[distcc] Support anywhere?

So it is! :-)

distcc[28074] (dcc_please_send_email_after_investigation) Warning: 
remote compilation of 'proxy.c' failed, retried locally and got a 
different result.

That pretty much sums it up, although distccmon also shows some 
"BLOCKED" messages too, variably.

distcc used to run and compile fine. I would have five machines 
compiling for me which would save a lot of time.

Then, for some reason, it has stopped.

inetd.conf used to show
distcc          stream  tcp     nowait.6000     distcc 
/usr/bin/distccd --inetd -N10 --allow

and I've changed that to
distcc          stream  tcp     nowait.6000     root    /usr/bin/distccd 
--inetd -N10 --allow

seen as the user "distcc" seems to have been removed, but when and why 
is a mystery to me.  A distcc installation created this user, so I don't 
know what would have removed it.

I realise this is not enough information.  I'm going to remove all trace 
of distcc from two test machines and try again, I have no idea why this 
has gone wrong.
