[ccache] sharing a cache

we're considering using ccache and sharing the cache between developers
here. I've followed the instructions in the manpage, but ccache doesn't seem
to realize that the object file is already in the cache, and compiles a new
one for every user.
- The output files have the same md5sum.
- The input files have the same datestamp (I rsynced them)
- I'm compiling from different home directories and machines
Does any of this play into ccache's decision about whether two compilations
are equal? Apart from the command line, what parameters go into the hash?
When both developers use the same machine, they can share the cache. If they
are on separate machines, it seems that they can't. Is there a way around this?
