I forgot the other scenario. "The other host" could be your local host,
but with another user.

Suppose compile.el uses already start-remote-process and
process-file. Then you could apply

(let ((default-directory "/sudo::/etc"))
  (grep-find (concat grep-find-command "xxx")))

searching as root on your local host.

Best regards, Michael.
