Why complicate it? Part of the compile is on the local machine and part
is on the server. The preprocessing happens on the local machine, so you
really are just handing preprocessed C code them over to the server,
along with any precompiler binary modules, and getting back .o files.
For example, GCC doesn't have 'make' built into it, why would the
server-side of the compilation need it?
