This package is based on the package 'distcc' from project 'home:dbahi'.
distcc is a distributed compilation front-end. It sends command lines
and preprocessed files to other machines, that ship the resulting
object file and compiler output back. It gives significant speed ups
with make -jN.
The major improvement in distcc 3 is the inclusion of "pump" mode. In
"pump" mode, distcc sends source file with their included header files
to the compilation servers, which now carry out both preprocessing and
compilation. As a result, distcc-pump can distribute files up to 10
times faster to compilation servers than distcc.
