You rang ? I used to, until yesterday, use one source tree for the i386 and
sparc ports. I changed, 'cause I *slowly* migrating NFS server services to
the sparc.

Yep. /usr/src is actually an NFS file system on one system, and a link
on the other.

Nope. This is where I diverge. I have the same /usr/obj on both systems,
parelleling the /usr/src tree. I think this make my life a little easier
for moving thing around. This is just me.

note: I do. :)
