I don't see any reason why this would not work.  If the machines are all
running the same version of FreeBSD I don't think there will be any
problem.  

This doesn't seem to me to be any different than building/installing
ports on host A and then mounting /usr/ports on host B from host A via
NFS and doing a make install of the already built ports.
