I see - but I talked about making

   make obj MACHINE=i386

on the NFS server - and the /var/obj.i386/sbin/atactl is on the client
(i386) only.
So for the moment I decided to remount /usr/src r/w emporarily and do make obj
on the i386 locally and then remount r/o again for the building of the whole

This remount procedure has to be done from time to time as the directory
structure in /usr/src changes.
