I have tried this too. From the README:
"distcc is now reasonably stable and can successfully compile the Linux kernel,
rsync, KDE, GNOME (via GARNOME), Samba and Ethereal. distcc is nearly
linearly scalable for small numbers of machines: for a typical case, three
machines are 2.6 times faster than one."
On cygwin one I have recgonized a compiling speedup by 2.0 up to 2.4 with three
machines depending on the network load.
