There are some env parameters that you can change but I couldn't find 
them. I do my builds on my fastest system and want them done as quickly 
as possible. So, I have /usr/src and /usr/obj on their own 

Your answer should be in the archive. Look around DESTDIR and others. 
Then, don't bother doing the link to /usr/src and /usr/obj. It doesn't 
matter at that point. That doesn't get you around the fact that make 
builds files with the original path built in.
