OK, so if I'm running the build on the fast host,
I should include 'localhost' first in DISTCC_HOSTS.

But what about SMP machines?  If the fast machine
is a dual processor box, and the others are all
single-processor, should I put localhost twice in DISTCC_HOSTS?

That's probably part of the reason I got such a poor
speedup -- I had no idea how to configure distcc
well in the first place, let alone configuring
it to deal with SMP systems.
