Is it possible to do a ''make buildworld buildkernel'' of the FreeBSD 6.x

Yes, I did this a few minutes ago in fact :) No special procedures are
necessary, world builds are already suitably isolated from the host system
for this to work.
Awesome! Infact, I didn't think it would be possible. Like you have
separate port packages for the 6.x and 7.x trees, I thought FreeBSD 6.x
compiled on a FreeBSD 7.x system won't run. But I was obviously wrong.
Guess its different for the base OS eh ...?
Going by the same logic, is it possible that tomm I can download the
sources for an OS like say, NetBSD, buildworld for it on my FreeBSD
machine, and then install on a NetBSD machine?
