Just so I understand your use case: In what way is it a burden? > Thus, I did some modification to the code, in order to get the base dir > dynamically, I add another enviroment variable.

I think that it would be better to make ccache understand variable references in the existing CCACHE_BASEDIR variable so that you can set it to '$PWD' and it will work as expected. I'm currently working on introducing a configuration file for ccache, and I'm actually planning to make such variable expansions for all variables (both in the configuration file and in the environment) that specify paths (CCACHE_DIR, CCACHE_BASEDIR, etc). So in ccache 3.2, you will be able to do what you want.
