I'm neither familar (to review) nor use this port (to QA). It takes too much
time[1] (at least 4 hours) to test on my hardware, blocking work on other
ports. The work here is complete (waiting for confirmation), so it's too late
to bundle other changes in order to test together.

[1] Chromium used to support https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unity_build similar
to Firefox but removed later, see

    ccache wouldn't help with initial or infrequent builds (e.g., old cache is
useless after a major update). It also requires fast storage and tons of space
to accomodate multiple release/architectures and multiple ports. Each of those
would probably want a separate CCACHE_DIR. I don't use ccache myself in order
to reduce SSD wear and avoid ccache-specific issues.
