I've an ugly hack to get ccache working inside the pbuilder, that saves lots 
of build time:
isaac@tyler:~/debian/pbuilder-hooks$ cat A01sh
echo "Setting up ccache"
apt-get install ccache
cd /usr/lib/ccache
for c in *
        ln -s /usr/bin/ccache /usr/sbin/$c
ln -s /var/cache/pbuilder/ccache /root/.ccache

and I run pbuilder as:
pdebuild -- --bindmounts /var/cache/pbuilder/ccache --hookdir

Well, I tried that and didn't managed to get it working so I just put there a 
sleep 9999999
so I can chroot into the pbuilder build dir and debug the problem :)
