Tested on Archlinux + ccache + gcc7.

Impressive. Build is really quick. Especially in empty build case, where
existing build system takes a while to complete. Thanks for the RFC.

Faced an issue(The latest gcc 7 specific DPDK flags are not showing
up correctly) with ccache + gcc 7 environment with ninja.
Look like something is missing in configuration side.
