I still have issues starting the Avahi daemon(s) if not only because the require write access to /run but also complain about an already running mDNS daemon (presumably the system one). This has nothing to do with distcc, but it seems avahi should act as a bridge to Apple's ZeroConf implementation, on Mac.
