It's pretty typical for ccache packages to install symlinks for compilers that may not be present on the system, such as Homebrew's ccache package.  Unfortunately, the file is mislead by the presence of the symlink and ends up backtracing.

This issue is present in 2.7 and onwards.  I'm attaching two possible fixes for the problem, both created against 2.7.  The issue is that the symlink in detected, but _read_output() returns None, which then fails when the output is examined (if 'str' in None...).  The first patch does a simple non-empty check.  The alternate version makes _read_output() return an empty string instead of None.
