Nice listing.

Just to mention: the mkdir isn't necessary as the following call to
ccache with CCACHE_DIR set creates it on the fly.

I'd reserve at least 5GB for the cache nowadays.

These could be set before ./configure so they get written permanently to

Before invoking build here is one detail missing:

cd instsetoo_native

> build -P8 --all (my build box is a Quad Core, with 6 GB Ram)

and then to verify the build using the basic smoketest

cd $SRC_ROOT/smoketestoo_native

and refrain from using X for about a minute or two, or use Xnest.
