There's one thing that prevents using distcc.. Using the -j# option
causes the build log to get scrambled, because there's no
synchronization for that use case in BBv1. So the processing of the log
for the result generation can't deal with it. If I remember correctly
Volodya put in handling for this into BBv2.
