Re: sharing /usr/src over nfs between multiple platforms

I would recommend mounting /usr/src read-only on all the machines that you
build on.  That will ensure that you never inadvertently write to the
sources (or any future build bugs don't).

When I run, I set:

  MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=/usr/obj/$ARCH	# or target ARCH if cross-build
  TOOLDIR=$MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX/$SRCDIR/tools/tools.`uname -s`-`uname -r`-$ARCH

and pass "-M $MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX -T $TOOLDIR -D $MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX/build" to, so that everything is separated under /usr/obj/ by destination
architecture.  You could also run cross builds by passing "-m <target-ARCH>"
to, and do both your amd64 and arm builds on the (faster) amd64.
(I also NFS mount /usr/obj.)

I usually have custom kernel configurations outside the source tree, and I
set $KERNCONFDIR for those, and if I'm building from sources not under
/usr/src, I set $NETBSDSRCDIR and $X11SRCDIR.
