BTW. Are you using md(4) (memory backed) devices to keep sources/objects?
If compiling for different architectures doesn't run in parallel, we just
need to keep sources in memory (put it there on boot) and only create
one (~600MB) md(4) device and mount it on /usr/obj. After compiling we just
have to:

	# umount /usr/obj
	# newfs /dev/mdX
	# mount /usr/obj
	# <start next arch>

(I assume you don't you -DNOCLEAN:))
It for sure should extend life of tinderboxes (mainly their disks) and
speedup things a bit, but we need machines with ~1.5GB of RAM.
