every version bigger than 2.4 should be ok. ("python >= 2.4 needed")

At distcc.org the issues list has an issue for this which has a proposed
patch attached (search the issues list for "python 2.7"). It needs testing.
Please test the patch.

As Martin said, the --allow flag takes an inet address not a filename.

The init script may have shell commands for converting a file to a sequence
of --allow flags to use to invoke distccd.
