dpkg will tell you which package of cache you installed with your OS
software installation tool. configure ; make ; make install is
independent of that tool. You can check which version is being picked
up in your PATH like so...
$ ccache --version
You can see where ccache is in your path like so...
$ which ccache
What you'll need to do in uninstalled ccache with dpkg, then do make
install again. ccache --version should be the latest then. Keep in
mind that you can have bother versions installed. One installed in
/usr, the other installed in /usr/local. make install typically puts
things in /usr/local unless you give configure a --prefix=/usr. You can
set the PATH env var to pick up /usr/local/bin before /usr/bin. This
would also work (but dpkg will only report whatever version it
installed). Check ccache --version after doing this...
$ export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH
