Compile farm?

Scott, 
 
.... or if you don't need batch but would like some interaction without the
use of any special libraries, you might like to have a little look at what
the MOSIX guys are doing at http://www.mosix.org/ or
http://www.mosix.cs.huji.ac.il/  (I'm not sure but I think their website is
down at the moment).  I am currently building a dev box for general use and
spreading compiles across nodes seems a good idea since you see the system
as one big box.  Then there is the added bonus you don't need to recompile
any code....! 
 
Regards, 
 
 
Mark.

What you need is a batch system. 
 
There are 2 free batch systems, SGE and PBS. 
 
Both of them are opensource, but nevertheless, you  
can 
get 7x24 support if you are willing to pay. 
 
PBS: www.openpbs.com 
     www.pbspro.com 
 
SGE: www.sun.com/gridware 
     gridengine.sunsource.net 
 
Also,  
SGE has qmake, which can execute several 
instances of make on mutliple machines for one single 
make job.
