The text you gave us gives me the thought you are flailing in the dark.
 First off, use a port management tool eg portmaster.  Learn how to use it
fully including regularly reading /usr/ports/UPDATING The handbook has
great information on managing ports, I suggest reading it closely if you
want FreeBSD to be your friend.

In this scenario, you would use

portsnap fetch update(assuming you've once a portsnap extract once before)
portmaster /usr/ports/net/samba35

The specific error in your message indicates some problem with ccache.
 What does your /etc/make.conf look like?
