ccache on IBM's developerWorks.
"Collaboratively building a C/C++ project using cc or gcc to share source files and other components works fine with CVS, but the time required to build the application when it has been merged with everybody else's changes can be significant. Even if you're not developing a project as part of a group, recompiling an application can take a lot of time. The ccache tool improves the build performance by caching the incorporation of header files into source files and therefore speeds the build time by reducing the time required to add in header files with each compilation stage.
