A quick and easy way that comes to mind is to export via NFS /usr/src
and /usr/obj from the fast machine to the slow machine. Do the builds
on the fast machine for configuration "SLOWPOKE". Then on the slow
machine simply "make KERNCONF=SLOWPOKE installkernel" to let the
standard tools do the job for you.
Probably have to trust root from slowpoke on speedy so that
installkernel can do all it wants.
