Is it possible to build a RELENG_5 system on a 4.10 system?

I've used new sources put in /home via cvsup to build slower systems and 
Soekris boxes in the past.  Setting DESTDIR and MAKEOBJDIEPREFIX puts 
the results of installworld & buildworld someplace other than /usr/obj. 
  But I've only done this with something like 4.x-stable while my build 
system ran 4.x-release.

Will this sort of thing work for 5.3?  Are there other environment 
variables that need to be set?
