Default catalyst's ccache USE flag seems a bit stupid

Indeed, emerge --prune would remove ccache.

I might suggest removing all ccache-related stuff in the ebuild and
adding a few einfo lines to the ebuild suggesting to the user to
emerge ccache (so that it'll be in @world) and how to modify
catalyst.conf to enable it. Do you think that would be OK?

It just seems like the USE flag is the wrong way of doing this.

(I'm so glad to see you working on catalyst. I've got a number of
patches that I need to commit, especially now that I see some other
activity)

Thanks!

I don't know. dev-util/metro seems to pull in ccache in a similar way.
I would love to hear a third voice on this.

Please go ahead.

Best,
