IIRC, there's a patch for GNU make (pmake?) that enables distributed builds.  
I'm not sure how up-to-date this is, though, and I've never tried it out myself.

IMO, and no offense, Ken, distcc isn't great since:
- it's limited to C and C++.
- preprocessing is done locally which offsets much of the advantages of 
distributing the build.

DistCC is one mechanism you can use for distributing compilation.  GNU
Make itself does not do anything special for distribution other than
support parallelization with -j and -l.

For information about DistCC, check here.
