I must admit its been over a year since I've done any full netbsd tree
builds - but back then, when I introduced, you could indeed 
build a full tree including kernels off a read-only src.

That's assuming you use MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX or some suitable magic
in MAKEOBJDIR, since anyother approach relies on being able to create
obj* dirs/links within the src tree.
