You could skip the brew install by using curl ... did you mean to install distccd somewhere w/ brew too?

Also, if you want to advertise the service via zeroconf (this isn't possible w/ brew distcc on the mac b/c it is compiled w/o avahi / dns-sd. Since my pis are looking for distcc servers using avahi, you might do something like this as a part of a startup script:

dns-sd -R distcc@mac _distcc._tcp . 3632 txtvers=1 cpus=8 distcc=3.2rc1 gnuhost=osx cc_version=4.7.1 cc_machine=arm-cortex_a8-linux-gnueabi

What is the proper way to start distccd? After install through brew, it says:
Use 'brew services start distcc' to start distccd automatically on login.
By default, it will allow access to all clients on 192.168.0.1/24.

To have launchd start distcc now and restart at login:
brew services start distcc

Is there a config file like on linux /etc/default/distcc ?
