If you're compiling an out-of-tree module that requires the kernel be compiled 
with support for a particular item and the distccd host's kernel does not 
have that support compiles fail.  Reference bug #120001 (though I know that 
it was properly diagnosed there).

Then there's also this doozie. -> #167844.
