1/ presumably, now-a-day with everything under gbuild, the dep
tracking should be fairly reliable, hence rending ccache less
relevant. It might be that we should not auto-enable ccache when
dep-tracking is enabled.
2/ that problem seems to me related to switching dep-tracink between
build... that is a very limited corner case that is not worth
optimizing, especially not at the expense of complexity and overhead
to the common cases. iow: if it hurt when you do it... stop doing it
