But you still need to get the directories made under BSDOBJDIR.
I don't use OBJMACHINE, I simply use something like BSDOBJDIR=/var/obj
and for the bulk of the tree, unpacking a cpio/tar/pax archive
containing the directores under $BSDOBJDIR on the client is all
that is needed.

I use this setup to share source other than /usr/src - works fine.
