Comment (by ryandesign):

 Now that we've indicated that asciidoc doesn't install any libraries, its
 license no longer affects the distributability of ccache, and since
 nothing else prevented its distributability, we now have binary archives
 of ccache that we can distribute.

 And now that we have properly indicated that ccache only needs asciidoc as
 a build dependency, asciidoc will only be installed if you build ccache
 from source, but won't be installed if you install a binary of ccache.

 Is that sufficient? Or do you still think a variant is needed? Normally
 manpages are the kind of thing we would always want to install; a doc
 variant would normally only be used for less-frequently-used
