I'm not happy about this commit either: when packaging LibreOffice under pkgsrc,
it doubles the size of the build tree for no gain in speed.

The pkgsrc framework sanitizes the environment; $HOME is a temporary directory
which is always removed and created anew for each build.

I'm using ccache for development builds (from git), and I _don't_ want to use
it when creating packages on the same machine.

Could this change be reverted ? Instead of improving things, it degrades them.
