Is there a reason to do a cd before every compile in the makefile? IMHO it's only a way to direct the objects into a specific directory. The same effect could be achieved by a -o option which would even prevent some overhead.

The actual reason why I'm asking is that it prevents from using distcc, a VERY handy tool on a 233MHz Pentium these days!

You could say now, OK go ahead and change the Makefiles, BUT I'm using Gentoo Linux, where the makes are done automaically.
