Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this fails to build for me on
late-model OS X:

$ ./configure
$ make 
gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H  -DSYSCONFDIR=/usr/local/etc -I. -I.  -g -O2 -Wall -W -c -o main.o main.c
gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H  -DSYSCONFDIR=/usr/local/etc -I. -I.  -g -O2 -Wall -W -c -o conf.o conf.c
make: *** No rule to make target `-lz', needed by `ccache'.  Stop.

The reason appears to be that the Makefile gets generated like so:

$ grep extra_libs Makefile
extra_libs = -lz
ccache$(EXEEXT): $(ccache_objs) $(extra_libs)
        $(CC) $(all_cflags) -o $@ $(ccache_objs) $(all_ldflags) $(extra_libs) $(LIBS)
test/main$(EXEEXT): $(base_objs) $(test_objs) $(extra_libs)
        $(CC) $(all_cflags) -o $@ $(base_objs) $(test_objs) $(all_ldflags) $(extra_libs) $(LIBS)

and of course "-lz" isn't a valid dependency.  Manually removing
$(extra_libs) from these two dependency lists fixes it.

I do not recall having had this problem the last time I built ccache,
but that was 3.2.1, so I don't know whether it was introduced in
3.2.2 or 3.2.3.
