Not from what I know of dist-cc.  You just need dist-cc, and nothing else.
dist-cc just offloads the number-crunching, so it uses no data from the
non-master node.  AFAIK anyway (which is NOT much on dist-cc matters).

I know.  But dist-cc is not a cross-compiler.  And unlike a buildd farm
like m68k has, it will cut down the ammount of time it takes for a BIG
package to be compiled.
