Digging more into the command lines of the various HS files, they 
include many generated sources and, also this folder:

build/<CONF>/hotspot/variant-server/libjvm/objs/precompiled

Now, I don't know exactly how ccache deals with PCH but I notices that 
every time that the files in this folder are regenerated by the build (I 
can easily do that by rerunning the same command line that is stored 
inside the , a ccache miss follows.
