ports/169579 is currently tracking this.

This patch adds ccache support to ports (off by default). Other patches
have changed $CC to use ccache, which results in having a space in $CC.
This breaks many ports such as boost and libtool ports.

This patch however utilizes the symlinks in
/usr/local/libexec/ccache/{cc,gcc,etc...} by prefixing that directory
into $PATH in the $MAKE_ENV.

Using this method, I have seen 0 failures, compared to the $CC method
which results in many build failures and requiring to define which ports
do not support ccache.

To enable: Define WITH_CCACHE_BUILD=yes in /etc/make.conf

The cache directory CCACHE_DIR defaults to /usr/obj/ccache

Defining NO_CCACHE can disable ccache support in make.conf or in a port.
This is mostly to allow compatibility with current setups utilizing

If $CC already contains ccache, the support is disabled in case of
custom setup.

Users can override other ccache env variables [1] by using MAKE_ENV+= in
their make.conf. Such as:

MAKE_ENV+= CCACHE_LOGFILE=/var/log/ccache.log

To use ccache(1) from the command line to configure the size or view
stats: CCACHE_DIR=/usr/obj/ccache ccache -s

FWIW, this is also possible to achieve with bsd.local.mk [2], but it
would be much nicer to support without needing to customize your checkout.
