On some of the systems where I use different versions, I have
mounted of the NFS-server. in which I have.

Then also have /usr/objs mounted, with the same setup

And on the remote systems link /usr/src -> /usr/srcs/src??/src and same
for obj....

I have yet to run into trouble when I do the normal things. It gets
messy if I'd like to build both i386 and amd64 in the same obj-tree.
That does not always work, but adding a differentiating i386 and amd64
to the hierarchy seemed to fix it. But I retired all but one i386, and
that is soon to follow.
