ds2 is for 'Debian Source 2'. Only the gcc source package carry it, not
the binary. ds2-17 have m68k bugs that are fixed in ds2-20 so I strongly
suggest to get the ds2-20 sources (use apt-get source gcc-4.1 on the
ppc, not on the m68k).

You could use a specific network to communicate to the 68k box, use
ipmasq on the ppc (for gateway) and have distcc only listen to that
network. That is what I do.
Imagine a large blue swirl here.
