The gnustep* packages can't be built when using ccache as the compiler,
i.e, setting PKGSRC_COMPILER="ccache gcc". I guess the same problem
will appear if using distcc.
The problem is that the configure script enters an infinite loop when
calling the compiler, driving to a 'cannot fork' error that ends up
with 'the compiler is broken'.
I think this happens in these packages because they change PATH's
value directly. Buildlink3 and compiler.mk are very path sensible,
so any differences in there can lead to problems. (Just a guess).
Set PKGSRC_COMPILER="ccache gcc" in the environment and try to build
devel/gnustep-make, for example. It will consume lots of CPU and then
