Only you can decide what's too slow, so try it. If I can do it with a
Linux NFS export mounted on Solaris (and I can), I'm sure you'll be
fine. One caveat, though; make sure you're using ntpd, and keep your
times accurate on those two systems. Otherwise you'll get
timestamp-related errors when you build.
