    Tools/portbuild/scripts claim-chroot clean-chroot 
  Support builds using zfs and tmpfs backing store
  * Enabled by use_zfs=1 in portbuild.conf
  * Populate build chroots by cloning a zfs snapshot instead of maintaining
    many duplicate copies.  In principle this is very efficient since
    everything is copy-on-write and zfs snapshot creation is almost
    instantaneous.  There might be additional overheads from building on zfs
    though.  Currently the snapshot base is hard-wired to y/${branch}@base
    but should be parametrized.  This also must be populated beforehand, e.g.
    during machine startup
  * Clean build chroots by just destroying the snapshot.
  * Enabled by use_tmpfs=1 and tmpfs_size in portbuild.conf
  * The previous md strategy of mounting in used/, populating and then
    remounting (to avoid possible races from multiple builds claiming the
    same chroot) doesn't work here because tmpfs instances are destroyed at
    umount.  I am not entirely sure the simpler approach is free from races.
