Yes. I do this all the time. I never build in /usr/src or /usr/obj
One has to make sure that one has the right config to generate the
compile tree with. I believe that the compilers are still compatable
enough to allow this to happen.
Building world can be done, but may require some hand steps. It has
been a while since I've done this.

Yes. See the recent cross compilation thread in freebsd-arch for
