This is done to create a pristine environment (with an empty /etc/make.conf, etc.) which is then chroot'ed into.
Also, when I wrote "/usr/src" and "/usr/obj" I didn't mean them literally. "make world" in /my/src-5 with MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX=/his/obj and /his/obj/my/src-5 staffed with the "buildworld" output from the above should work too.
