[distcc] Using a weaker machine or not

There is a tool out there that I wrote a long time ago called DMUCS, which
is a wrapper around distcc. I built it for just this situation -- where
you have some machines that are much faster than others in your compilation
dmucs.sourceforge.net is where you can find it.
I have not maintained this tool, I'm sorry to say. I've spent some time
rewriting it in python, but haven't finished that...
What DMUCS does is run a little daemon on each compilation machine,
monitoring that machine's load average. Also, you configure DMUCS to know
that some machines are x amount faster than other machines. Then, in your
makefile, you run the dmucs tool, which find the best machine at the time
-- i.e., the fastest machine, unless that fastest machine's load average is
already high -- and tells distcc to use the best machine for that
I think dmucs still does work -- but you might have a bit of a time
compiling it, as it is getting pretty old now.
let me know if you are more interested, and/or need help.
