There's no reason why moc can't be ccache'd.

As for a compile farm, the big problem is that moc usually isn't scheduled and 
the farm doesn't know that you're trying to run it. When you run make -jN with 
N being the number of slots in your farm, you end up getting N local mocs too. 
The solution for that is a build tool (make, ninja, etc.) that understands 

I apply the following hack to force moc scheduling with icecream.

$ grep QMAKE_TOOL mkspecs/linux-g++-optimised/qmake.conf
