I completely forgot to mention the version I was using: I was trying to
make IPv6 work on distcc 3.1 as included in Gentoo's portage tree
(3.1-r5). It does configure distcc with --enable-rfc2553, but (and
correct me if I'm wrong) chokes on any CIDR prefixes bigger that /32. 

Sorry for all the noise, but at least this email might pop up next time
someone searches for IPv6, distcc and Gentoo.

I will try to compile svn version over the weekend, and check if Gentoo
have a bug report/feature request for distcc.
