implement set cache directory

find below a patch which let user set a custom chache folder.

Environment variable OFFPUNK_CACHE_PATH is used.
This way, it can be set globally in a profile, or occasionnaly before running offpunk.
It also avoid the pain to parse options and dealing with flags in scripts.
Thank you for your attention.
