FreeBSD Port: devel/distcc

Hi all,

Does distcc use the /usr/local/etc/distcc/clients.allow file by default?
I ask because the default /usr/local/etc/rc.d/distccd file is set as follows:

distccd_flags=${distccd_flags-"-a --user distcc --daemon -P /var/

I was able to allow access to hosts in my network by adding "--allow 

Also, by default distcc seems to listen to IPv6 on port 3632, but not IPv4. Is 
that by design?
