ITP: distcc -- a distributed C and C++ compiler frontend

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name:		distcc
  Version:		0.6
  Upstream Author:	Martin Pool <mbp@sourcefrog.net>
  URL:			http://distcc.samba.org/
* License:		GPL v2
  Describtion:		A frontend to a compiler (e.g. gcc) to make it
			distribute the compile over multiple machines.

distcc is a program to distribute compilation of C or C++ code across
several machines on a network. distcc should always generate the same
results as a local compile, is simple to install and use, and is often
significantly faster than a local compile.

Unlike other distributed build systems, distcc does not require all
machines to share a filesystem, have synchronized clocks, or to have the
same libraries or header files installed. Machines can be running
different operating systems, as long as they have compatible binary
formats or cross-compilers. (Currently it is being tested on
gcc-linux-x86 and gcc-freebsd-x86.)
