Hm, by looking at the sources, it seems that "ccache -M" and "ccache -F"
store cache size limits in the $CACHE_DIR/*/stats files. Which *kind of*
sense because the stats are updated after every run.

This means having an environment variable for "cache size" does not make
sense. Yay. Sorry for the noise.
