Building WebKit on a MacPro 5,1 (mid 2010 - 2.8GHz quad core Xeon with
SSD, 20 gb of ram, gigabit LAN) with Mac OS 10.8 takes 30 minutes and it
really slows down the daily work.

Buying new Macs is just too expensive and the current ones have plenty of
computing power if we use them to the full extent.

Back in the 10.6 days, distcc did a great job at speeding up the builds.

How can the build of WebKit be distributed on all the Macs in the LAN to
fully utilize the computing power?
