This is a self-contained port of the popular distcc distributed
compilation package for AmigaOS.

For more information and documentation on distcc please visit
the web site at http://www.distcc.org/

Most of the distcc tools are available including:
 distcc          - client for dispatching compiles
 distccd         - server for servicing compile requests
 distccmon-text  - text based monitor tool
 distccmon-amiga - GUI based monitor tool

The following features are currently disabled in this port:
 - pump mode
 - inetd mode
 - syslog support
 - ssh support
 - daemon detaching
 - masquerading
 - job lifetime limit (sockets timeout instead)

All remaining features including the multi-threaded pre-forking
daemon, lzo compression and GUI monitor are available.

When combined with GNU make's parallel build feature and a pool of
servers, the distcc package can save a lot of time compiling larger

Copy distcc/SDK SDK: ALL CLONE

Next either setup a home directory and the HOME environment variable
or use the DISTCC_DIR to point to where distcc files will be stored.
The distcc client maintains a set of files in the .distcc directory.

Finally, setup the DISTCC_HOSTS environment variable or use the
HOME:.dists/hosts file to describe your network and you are
ready to do distributed compiles.

Prefixing your project compile lines with "distcc" will now
distribute the compile to the hosts you have just configured.
The distccd daemon must be running on each host.

Please see the distcc documentation and use the --help option
on the distcc client and distccd server for more details.

The distccd daemon uses simple IP filtering for some security
specified with the --allow option. Don't forget you can also
specify a network of nodes such as a LAN.

For example,
 distccd --allow

Will allow all the nodes in your LAN.

The distccd daemon keeps track of some statistics which can be
retrieved via the built-in HTTP server activated with the --stats
option. See the distccd documentation for more details.

Note the dcc_free_space metric will always return zero if you use
RAM: to store your temporary files.
