Try running this on both the good Toronto system and one of the bad ones, and
compare the output:

strace -v -f make  2>&1 | grep "exec..(.*) = 0"

That will tell you all the sub-programs that are being used (with their full
path).  You might add " | cut -b -80" to the end of that command to make it
more human readable.

Finally, if you're using ccache, you might want to clear the cache (either
'ccache -C' or 'rm -rf ~/.ccache') in case that's somehow fudging things up.
