Yes.  From build(7):

:      installworld     Install everything built by a preceding buildworld step
:                       into the directory hierarchy pointed to by make(1) vari-
:                       able DESTDIR.
:                       If installing onto an NFS file system, make sure that
:                       rpc.lockd(8) is running on both client and server.  See
