Just use a single patches directory (the one in distcc).

If the replacements are safe, yes, that'd be OK. Just keep in mind to
use the subst framework rather than sed (grep for SUBST_CLASSES in the
existing packages for examples).

Yes, it's worth to have the icon and .desktop file. The application
will then be visible in gnome/kde's menu. (Or in other wm's, when we
implement the required functionality.)

distcc-gtk. There is no advantage in hardcoding the version number in
the program's name and will just cause confusion.
