Multiple Machines Compiling

I'm not sure if this can be done or not but I am running two machines. FC3 w/ Athlon XP 3000+ and Gentoo 2005.0 w/ Athlon64 3000+. I am wondering if when I compile I program if it is possible to have one of the other computers share the workload and help out compiling with it's idle procoessor?

it would be more stable if versions of GCC and GLibc are the same across machines.
