That will have two effects:

1 - using the masquerade directory or not will give different results

2 - ccache won't notice if you update the underlying gcc

Probably the best advice at the moment is to always use both of them.
If you don't want distributed compilation set DISTCC_HOSTS=localhost
and if you don't want caching set CCACHE_DISABLE.  The overhead should
then be pretty low.
