I do plenty of build once and run on multiple machines.  My biggest machine is a
PII 40MHZ where I compile the world and kernels for a 486 laptop and P-60
Router/Firewall.  I would not really want to compile the world on these slower
machines over nfs.

For my case, I guess I could rebuild only the ssl library for each machine
properly tuned.  For my small collection of machines, that wouldn't be too bad,
but for larger sites it would be a problem.  I could probably find some way to
compile multiple version with buildworld and figure out the correct one to
install with installworld.
