to what extent does building the sources on my machine affect the resulting
binaries? to be more specific:
i read the freebsd handbook section on maintaining multiple systems from one
'build machine'. if i were to allocate one of the machines on my network to
build sources into binaries, say my HP PII, would those binaries be
appropriate to install on my thinkpad? my understanding is that i could take
a subset of those binaries and install them on my laptop, and then build the
kernel from the thinkpad and this would work (assuming i got all the
binaries right). is that correct?
