Which linking error?

You probably need <linkflags>-m32 as well, though it's a blue-sky guess. If that
does not help, I would recommend simplifying your testcase as much as possible,
and see if building with distcc directly works -- I did not ever try this 32/64-bit
distcc setup. You might also want to try icecream -- which might do something different
in such mixed environment.
