ln -s?

Forums: 

Not sure exactly how to do this

I'm building a distro from scratch and I'm trying to use " ccache" as the cache for gcc. one way to make sure the ccache is used is to link to gcc, however when I look cc is already linked to gcc? I tried to ln -s to gcc and it doesn't show any link to gcc. Tried to ln -s to gcc,cc,g++
1. If I were to ln- s to cc ?, is the link by directional?
2.I find it hard sometimes to place ccache as a prefix to ./configure, That is after all my alternative. What about passing --with-ccache=/tools/bin/ccache?? or possibly if I do gcc="ccache gcc" \ export gcc ???
