[Beowulf] distcc on Beowulf?

Does anyone have experiences using distcc on a beowulf cluster?

I'm in the process of attempting to setup a Scyld cluster to do distcc, 
but the BProc processing methods and lack of complete mounts on compute 
nodes is giving me some trouble.
(gcc needs to exec cc1)

I'm using kernel builds (2.6.10) as a baseline test.

I'd love to get builds under 5 minutes and I'm curious if anyone has 
attempted or achieved similar goals.
