support ccache to speed up ttcn3 test compilation
By default, if ccache is found in PATH when runs, use cached compiled C++ object files during the build (or populate the cache in case an object is not cached yet). Objects are cached in ccache's default cache directory (~/.ccache) unless overriden by the CCACHE_DIR environment variable. The USE_CCACHE environment variable overrides auto-detection in and disables (USE_CCACHE=0) or enables (USE_CCACHE=1) use of ccache. Rebuilding the test suite from scratch with a populated cache is an order of magnitude faster than doing an initial build. ccache only speeds up C++ (.cc) to object file (.o) compilation. Linking object (.o) files into shared object (.so) files is still performed by the real compiler during every build. Change-Id: Ibb538f602206535c06980f88191c1dabe3c4cd82
