CCACHE and openJDK issues

I recently started using CCACHE on my systems to speed up builds. I ma 
having a problem now trying to build openjdk8.

I have the following in /etc/make.conf

# Enable CCACHE
.if !defined(NO_CCACHE)
   CC=  /usr/local/libexec/ccache/world/cc
   CXX= /usr/local/libexec/ccache/world/c++
.if ${.CURDIR:M*/ports/devel/ccache}
   NO_CCACHE= yes

I have verified that /usr/ports/java/openjdk8/Makefile contains 

But when I try to build openjdk8, I get the following failure.

checking for cc... /usr/local/libexec/ccache/world/cc
configure: Resolving CC (as /usr/local/libexec/ccache/world/cc) failed, 
using /usr/local/libexec/ccache/world/cc directly.
checking resolved symbolic links for CC... 
checking if CC is disguised ccache... yes, trying to find proper C 
checking for cc... cc

configure: The C compiler (located as /usr/local/bin/ccache) does not 
seem to be the required GCC compiler.
configure: The result from running with --version was: "ccache version 
configure: error: GCC compiler is required. Try setting 
configure exiting with result code 1
===>  Script "../../configure" failed unexpectedly.

It appears that I must have missed something in my /etc/make.conf, 
causing it to not honor the NO_CCACHE definition, anyone know what I am 
doing wrong?
