No, ccache is not magic, ccache is a cache to speed up the second build, not the first one, since there is no cache the first build ... It has nothing to do with parallel builds...

For example, If I upgrade a port or something, I may need to compile the application several times (Depending on how much patching is needed), so then ccache is very useful.
For a normal end-user who just compiles ports, ccache's usefulness is limited...

As for geany, I had no problems compiling 0.14,1 - Which is the latest version (VTE and NLS turned off) ... What error/problem did you have exactly?
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
