It looks like a bug in freetype's build system, not in ccache - you
will get the same error if you run this:

    make CC=gcc

If you let ccache masquerade as the compiler (see
http://ccache.samba.org/manual.html#_run_modes), then it works fine
(if you don't specify CC= to make, that is). It also seems like it
works if you specify the compiler to configure:

    CC="ccache gcc" ./configure
