Bug 224: OPEN

ccache: add symlinks

Date: 2019-10-06 - Creator: Gorgg - Priority standard - 0 messages

I am hesitant to file this as a bug, as it is purely a convenience feature, but 
it is one that many other distributions provide. Please let me know if I am in 

I would like to request that the ccache package include symlinks in the 
/usr/lib/ccache directory so that cached versions of tools such as gcc can be 
called simply by adding /usr/lib/ccache to $PATH. For example, when a program 
would call gcc, it executes /usr/lib/ccache/bin/gcc, which in turn invokes 
'ccache gcc "$@"'. This is very useful when working with complex 
build systems, and most online sources recommend using ccache this way.

Thanks in advance for any reply.

Affected package(s): ccache
