Yes, it is OK to build over a previously created DESTDIR; I do this
all the time, because I always build with UPDATE set.
You may encounter issues where there are now-obsolete files in $DESTDIR.
If you're running -current, you can fix this after a "make build" with
./etc/postinstall -s `pwd` -d $DESTDIR check obsolete
./etc/postinstall -s `pwd` -d $DESTDIR fix obsolete
This requires /var/db/obsolete to be up to date, which "make build"
(or any target which calls "build" such as "distribution", "release",
"snapshot", ...) does with its "do-obsolete" dependency.
