I forgot to mention it but this patch changes a bit how makepkg use
distcc and ccache.  Currently, if the distcc or ccache options are
used and they are not installed, makepkg simply doesn't enable the
support and build the package like normal. However, with this patch,
makepkg will aborts. To keep current behavoir, the error message for
distcc and ccache will need to be replaced by a warning message.
