I have a rather slow computer on which I run gentoo, but would like to farm out compiles to my faster machines. So I installed and configured distcc, and tried to install software... and it failed.
In config.log for the ebuild, the following error was given:
Could not run/locate "i386-pc-linux-gnu-gcc"
This is most likely because the CHOST on the computer it was trying to compile on is i686-pc-linux-gnu. Therefore, the gcc is named accordingly. How can I get distcc to just use the generic "gcc"?
The slow machine is building x86 (pentium-mmx) binaries (which are really an NFS root for an even slower machine, lol)
My fast machine is a P4, and therefore on the i686 side of things.
