Do you have a local ports tree which is used? Other than that I can't 
think how it could still use an older Portfile.

Did you try port -d? Look for the porturl it is using.

I doubt ccache has anything to do with this. It merely acts as a cache 
for the compiler and has nothing to do with Portfiles.
