I have experimented with using ccache on an _unmodified_ checkout.

On my laptop 

./ build (basically) takes:

Build started at:  Wed Oct 28 17:23:48 AST 2009
Build finished at: Wed Oct 28 18:49:25 AST 2009

for a total of 1:25:37

whereas using ccache with a populated cache by shell-aliasing cc, c++,
gcc, g++, /usr/bin/gcc, .../tooldir/bin/i386--netbsdelf-gcc, etc and
then running ./ build twice, the second run takes:

Build started at:  Wed Oct 28 19:04:53 AST 2009
Build finished at: Wed Oct 28 19:58:05 AST 2009

for a total of 0:53:12

That would be saving 38%, if it can be applied to the TNF build
cluster (assuming it's not used there yet), that would take yield
almost 5 builds per day.

I _haven't_ yet tested the resulting executables, but even if the
process needs some modifications, I believe it will work in principle
and I don't expect the times to change much.

I would suspect that the TNF build cluster has a HD speed to CPU speed
ratio that would make the relative savings even more...

Best regards,
