4 Don't use ccache. We (speaking as a former gnome herd member) have had
5 countless unexplained bugs due to ccache.
7 Now, the gnome procedure for build failures is to ask users to first
8 disable distcc and ccache before trying to reproduce the bug, and that
9 solves nearly all the weird issues that no-one else can reproduce.
11 Bottom line, unless you're building the same code over and over again,
12 don't use ccache. And even if you are, don't use it, its cache is just
13 too easily broken.
15 Cheers,
