The parallelcompiling-hint ships a patch for the nalfs-profile within. 
It's atm a bit outdated, I will sync them with lfs-6.0 soon.

tony seguiera did once a profile on his own for distcc (uncertain), have 
a look on the mail-archives (he did the distcc-hint as well).

It should be safe to do so, see crosscompiling-x86-hint. It's atm a bit 
outdatet, I will sync them with lfs-6.0 soon (and include a patch 
similary to parallelcompiling for the nalfs-profiles).
