Maybe try this in /etc/mk.conf:
Then, when you want to get rid of it, just use rm.
I also have my own scripts for make fetch, make fetch-list and make
checksum. These targets are incredibly slow too. I guess slowness is
the price you have to pay for portability ;).

That's what i am thinking. But i have to make measurements. Maybe a
local disk is still faster? It is for sure for continuous file
transfers. But for random access of small files a SSD-backed fast NFS
server could be faster.

Well, i think it might be a waste of energy.
I use two Thinkpad X61 laptops at home for servers. They run Debian
and everything else i can wish for in KVM. C2D with 2x1.8GHz and 4 GB
Ram. Gigabit ethernet and builtin UPS, 64bit, Intel-VT. 14 watts idle.
And really, really cheap. Nearly for free if you can get one with a
broken screen or cracked case.

Don't waste time on fancy casings. I would just use a wood frame to
get a prototype running. If it runs, one can think about making it pretty.
