I have been updating FreeBSD for years on my fastest computer and then
NFS mounting /usr/src and /usr/obj to share with other PC's. I just
updated FreeBSD-CURRENT to 326070 and was able to install the kernel and
world. When I attempted to run mergemaster, I received the following
*** Creating the temporary root environment in /var/tmp/temproot
*** /var/tmp/temproot ready for use
*** Creating and populating directory structure in /var/tmp/temproot
/bin/sh: cannot create freebsd.cf: Permission denied
*** FATAL ERROR: Cannot 'cd' to /usr/src and install files to
the temproot environment
In the many years that I have been doing updates using NFS shares, it
has never required write access to /usr/src to use for a temproot.
