You probably want to move that unless /root/ is on a big partition.

Whatever works. I seem to have commented-out the path in .cshrc.

IIRC CCACHE_PATH tells ccache where to look for compilers.

csh wouldn't anyway, that's why we have to type rehash
BTW I would suggest you also set CCACHE_HASH_COMPILER. It's a poorly

cachable. I prefer to set it unconditionally. If you don't then
building world, even a point release, invalidates the cache of port
