Your package build-depends on ccache, and it actively enforces it in the
debian/rules file. Why is that?
I would be willing to bet money that the problem is that buildd's have
no (writable) home directory, so ccache fails. Drop the ccache stuff, or
if it _absolutely_ necessary, setup a bogus $HOME so that ccache can
work in the buildds.
