This is just a heads up to the ccache community about a new option
I've added to GCC which reduces the time to perform ccache lookups.
Starting with GCC 4.3, executing
ccache <compiler> -fdirectives-only [OPTIONS]
will cause ccache to use a partially preprocessed source file in its
lookup. It is about 30% faster to generate the partially preprocessed
source than it is to perform full preprocessing. However, it comes at
a slight cost: the time taken to perform the initial compilation via
ccache is increased.

Feel free to try out the latest GCC trunk and send me any feedback you
may have. I am not on the ccache mailing list, so please cc me on any
