Really enabling portage compile cache

I always thought I had portage’s compile cache enabled, but upon recent inspection, it appears that I didn’t. What was missing, was the package dev-util/ccache. I also increased the cache size to 2 GB, as per the Gentoo documentation.

I noticed this because recently, portage started saying this:

!!! Directory does not exist: '/usr/lib/ccache/bin'
!!! Disabled FEATURES='ccache'

      You’ve just made the hundred-eleventh post. 🙂 That’s the same age that Bilbo was when he left the Shire. I hope that this doesn’t mean that you’ll leave this blog. 😉
