You might be confusing it with the above line, you probably don't need the 
/usr/obj bit, as you should have BSDOBJDIR set.  Do you really need the above 
line?  you'll end up with objdir names such as i386-on-i386.i386, the .i386 
is appended by the OBJMACHINE, if you just have OBJMACHINE set you get dir 
names such as obj.i386.

what happens if you do make obj in that dir, does it attempt to create the 
obj dir?  if the obj dir exists where is it pointing to?  does the place it 
points to exist?

No need to wait, I build for arm32, i386 and sparc out of the same tree, my 
mk.conf looks like:
I then just run make obj by hand (takes too long on machines if something 
stops it building) and then do make build.  I then end up with /usr/obj 
obj.arm32 obj.i386  obj.sparc
