 If  distcc's input is a makefie,  distcc must get all command instruction
instructions from this makefile.
 In distcc , is there some logic to analyze makefile?
 I guess that "gnu make" will help distcc to finish this job.
How can I get these data structures, and use distcc's mechanism in my
Do I must hack "gnu make"?
