Bug Description

Binary package hint: ccache


I think ccache should provide symlinks for cross-compilers, or a mechanism to register them.

Cross-compiler packages could just ship them, I'm not sure if that isn't a bit ugly.

Marcin, thought this bug might interest you :-)

it would also be great, if you include symlinks to gcc-4.4, which is the latest stable gcc version.

So it would be suffient to simply include /usr/lib/ccache to PATH to get it working in stable.

Thanks in advance,

I already added symlinks for 4.4 in 2.4-17ubuntu1 in maverick; in general, file separate bugs for separate changes.

I do not know since when update-ccache-symlinks does those symlinks.

update-ccache-symlinks stopped to include cross compilers since their moved from /usr/lib/gcc to /usr/lib/gcc-cross. The attached patch for update-ccache-symlinks seems to fix this.
