can you elaborate? There are certainly cases that ccache will punt,
and just pass through to the normal compiler when it doesn't know how
to handle a complex situation, but if you know of any cases where
ccache will actually produce an incorrect object file or binary then
please let me know (preferably with some way of reproducing it).
