I build sparc, sun3 and atari from a single NFS mounted src tree. I run
`make obj` on the NFS server and also on the clients. Because of the
different client architectures, I also need to run (for example) :
MACHINE=atari MACHINE_ARCH=m68k make obj
in /usr/src/lib and /usr/src/sys on the server. When directories are added
I just run `make obj` in the directory above them (on all platforms). I
should probably write a script to parse the SUP output to do this for me.
Doing this instead of in the top-level source directory saves me several
hours on the 68k machines.
My other computer also runs NetBSD
