That's the normal cross process, using a fast machine.

When you just want to rebuild a kernel, you can run nbconfig and
nbmake-evbarm from the tools dir to build kernels without the full
release.  But you may find that just redoing the release build is fast
enough, if you use update builds.

You may want to cross-build pkgsrc.  But that would be far more of an
adventure, as it's outside of normal now (I haven't done it myself), and
only works for some packges.
