Works great for me.  I have been doing bi-weekly builds of -current
for the past 3-4 weeks using NFS mounts, and of 1.6.1/1.6.2/current
for much longer on local mounts.  I NFS mount the entire source tree
area (which includes src and xsrc for 1.6.1, 1.6.2 and current, plus
pkgsrc and my local lsrc tree) onto my -current machine from my main
build machine using a fstab entry.  I do the same for my distfiles
area.  Then, when I start my build, my sandbox scripts (referenced in
other messages) union mount these directories below my sandbox.
