heres a test i did. compile glibc 2.3.6 (nptlonly) on 2 setups. 

athlon64/turion64, both single-core 2.0ghz connected via distcc over tcp over wifi. make -j4
  time: 22 minutes

macbook pro. 1.83ghz (32bit) dual-core. make -j3
  time: 23 minutes

seems like theres no real difference. except of course that if you run 64bit, you need to have your entire depchain down to glibc installed twice if you want to watch youtube or use PD :)
