Can you build for several machines from one /usr/src?
And also, can you do the same for the /usr/ports if you
make it available (read/write) over NFS to several sites?
After reading the "man ports", I believe that I should set
the variable PACKAGES for each site in the /etc/mk.conf, but
can I leave the WRKOBJDIR and DISTDIR the same for all sites?
And for /usr/src, should I set the DESTDIR and RELEASEDIR?
