  you mean the texi file? a few years of out of date... the README file
  is more updated.

  there is a "*trace *" buffer.

  should contain something like;

 >> REG_SEND: [TYPE erl-pid  4 0 0] rex [[TYPE
    erl-pid  4 0 0] [call distel rpc_entry (distel
    who_calls (mod fun 1)) [TYPE erl-pid  1 0 0]]]

 << SEND: [TYPE erl-pid  4 0 0] 
    [rex (["x" "y" 4 61] ["a" "b" 4 62])]

  you can also try running  distel:who_calls(M,F,A) in the erl shell.
