I have better patch which extends detection mechanism, so that along 
with size/mtime checksum of the compiler binary is stored as well. Since 
compiler binary linked from the same sources/objects will have the same 
checksum it allows ccache to be used safely with buildworld. Do you have 
any interest in putting it into the port?
