I've got two FreeBSD machines on two different networks(and two
different locations). One of them is as fast machine (i7-920) while
the other one is a Intel Atom. How can I build on the fast machine and
use those binaries on the slow one, without mounting /usr/obj using
nfs? first I was thinking about creating a dump file on the fast
machine and extract that on the slow, but that wont work on a
filesystem that is already populated. Would a tarfile work? (how about



I can provide some help at least. I found the page
http://onlamp.com/pub/a/bsd/2003/08/07/FreeBSD_Basics.html which says that
"make package" creates tgz packages which you can copy over to the slow
machine and use pkg_add to install.

This works for ports.  The OP is asking about the base system.

Commands that "might" be intresting to read about:
make fetch

As I am quiet new to this as well, lets hope someone else can explain how to
extract all packages easily (make package seems to work on one single
package, portinstall has an option for making packages as it works through
the build process whihc can be handy to create all dependencies in one go)
and what to think about when building for different architectures (if that
is necessary).

You could use 'make package-recursive', or have a look at ports-mgmt/tinderbox, which does this by default.
