I had not heard of them before. I do have a few questions thought.

I have found conflicting instructions on how to install a working
configuration with poudriere. This is the one that seems the most

Question 1:

Do I have to modify the existing /usr/local/etc/poudriere.d/make.conf

Question 2:

I am presently using "ccache". Do I have to modify the existing
"CCACHE_DIR=" parameter in the /usr/local/etc/poudriere.conf file?

Is there anything else I should be doing?

This is on a FreeBSD 13.1-RELEASE-p5 amd64 system with
poudriere-devel- installed.
