Hello again Kai,
As previously mentioned, distcc turned out not to be of any improvement
over my initial cross compile attempts.
I also tried qemu which wasn't much of an improvement over compiling
natively on my ARM device.
I have eventually succeeded in cross compiling on my x86_64 desktop and
although it's not as fast as a 5 minute native compile, I'll settle for
14 minutes as opposed to over 2 hours.
Thanks for the input.
