I believe ccache checks the compiler itself before issuing
a "hit". Since the buildworld process rebuilds the compiler
ccache thinks it's a different compiler and issues a "miss".
>From man ccache:
This tells ccache to not hash the real compiler's size and modi-
fication time. Normally this is the mechanism to detect compiler
upgrades. There are situations however, where even though the
compiler's size or modification time has changed you can safely
use the cached objects (e.g. if as part of your build system the
compiler is built as well and the compiler's source has not
changed; or if the compiler has only changes that do not affect
code generation). Use this feature only if you know what you are
I hope this helps?
