For the tests I described above, the equivalents (i.e., I used
different paths) of /usr/src and /usr/obj were both on NFS-mounted
filesysems.  If anything, this should makes things easier on the build
host, provided that the NFS subsystem doesn't puke, of course.

I don't see anything abnormal here.  If you just want to get this
stuff built, you might try adding more swap using the vn(4) driver.
As to why make is getting killed, however, I'm at a loss.  Although it
shouldn't matter, you might try rebooting.  This is current, after
all, and as such it's not immune to weird bugs.
