How distmake works

Distmake forwards all make targets to remote rpc.bldserver daemons started on build machines. The daemon must be started before distmake is executed, see QuickStart for further details.

Controlling distmake

The following environment variables are used by distmake:

  • DISTMAKE_HOSTS, if set, should point to the build hosts list (default is $HOME/.bldhosts).
  • DISTMAKE_ARCH, if set, indicates distmake that the build hosts list is $HOME/.bldhosts.$DISTMAKE_ARCH.

Debugging distmake

Use distmake --debug=r[,other debug flags]
