That's not true. I just ran `make buildworld buildkernel` on my
firewall. Here are ccache stats when the operation finished:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] [/root]# ccache -s
cache directory                     /srv/.ccache
cache hit                          12056
cache miss                            38
called for link                      461
multiple source files                  1
not a C/C++ file                    1228
unsupported compiler option            7
files in cache                    117366
cache size                         679.6 Mbytes
max cache size                       2.0 Gbytes

Ccache is used through the entire build process and there is no
hackery involved. Just follow the directions for changing the compiler
to /usr/local/libexec/ccache/world-cc. On this Celeron D 1.8 GHz
machine rebuilding world and kernel takes 45 minutes and 40 seconds. I
don't recall exactly what it was without ccache, but I think it was
around 3 hours. Just make sure that you set the CCACHE_HASH_COMPILER
variable, otherwise it will assume that the compiler is different just
because its modification time has changed.
