distcc with gentoo

I wanted to install gentoo on an old pII at 400MHz I own. The compilation time would take really really long if it was done on that machine only…that’s where I thought about installing distcc to my other gentoo machines. I followed Gentoo Distcc Documentation and in a few minutes I was able to compile stuff concurrently between 3 different machines, an athlonxp 2800+, an athlonxp 2500+ and and that pII 400MHz. I edited /etc/make.conf and replaced

The machines were all i686 and the whole process was a lot faster than it would if I compiled only at that old pII. I am now running an emerge –emptytree just to check if all will be compiled cleanly with distcc without problems.
