I haven't really seen any massive speed ups in recompilation.
I should've been more clear. I didn't mean parallel builds. I was referring to MAKEOPTS, you know -j10 or whatever. Implementing that in ports would improve compile times quite a bit. Currently, you need to use some hack to use anything above standard. I've tried setting MAKEOPTS, but it seems that it's not obeyed or such.

The configure script died with ccache enabled because it apparently couldn't find the compiler. So, I went to test another ports, pidgin. It compiled fine. So, I disabled ccache, and Geany compiled. It's not of much use to me as I'm actually interested in getting NetBeans to bend to FreeBSD or working with source code for that.
