Way to crush my hopes and dreams guy :(
Even if there are some portions that can't be done with distcc, let's

Anyway, I'm about to try and make some sense of the top level
makefiles and that sys.mk file.  If there's anything else you think I
need to take a look at, as far as importance/relevance to the
