wine & ccache

Hi folks,

Just wanted to let people know that ccache works rather well
with wine. On my lowly 600MHz Pentium box, it takes about
1h to compile, after a make clean. Second time through it
takes about 1/4h to do the same thing, 75% faster! (As an
added bonus, CPU utilization dropped from 86% to 60%)

A nice thing would be to also be able to generate a top
Makefile that knows all about the project, and we
no longer do the recursive descent. It takes my box
almost 20 seconds to do a 'make -s' after a full build.
Not sure how doable this is, but I'm sure that things
would be way faster if everything would be in one big
Makefile. Probably I'm just going to end up buying a
faster box before this gets implemented though :)

How long does it take to do a 'time make -s' after
a full build on one of the beefier boxes?
