Hi guys,

I thought I would share some info about some utilities I found recently 
with regards to overly painful compile times.

We have done some fairly extensive Corba based stuff at work, the last 
few months. Needless to say the compile times we have had for these 
beasts are numbing. Standard solution is of course faster machines, but 
there are some utils that can help if you got some extra machines at 
your disposal.

Have a look at

Both these projects (where distcc seem more mature) provide the 
possibility to distribute compilations over several machines.

Another solution would be to rewrite everything in Java and use Jikes 
:-D...err perhaps not, but it's amazing how fast compilations are using 
java and jikes...

- reinventor of the wheel
