I'd like to set up a build server at home to save me time when running portupgrade and building world.
I've read the handbook on this, and I'm happy with the process of NFS mounting /usr/src /usr/obj and /usr/ports etc.. I've two questions though. First, my home server currently runs 6.2-RELEASE - I update it using freebsd-update and it doesn't have the source for world & kernel. Is it possible to put the 7.0 source on this and build for installation on my desktop, or do I need to take the server to 7.0 before I do this? Second, is there anyway of building packages without installing them? I'm not keen to put X and all my desktop gubbins on the server when I only need it to build the packages. Thanks for any help.
