My production systems have their OS built on a "build machine"; at
install time, the build machine exports its /usr/src and /usr/obj, and I
"make installkernel installworld" (& mergemaster...) on the production

I'm still building ports using portmaster on the production systems (as
I lack the infrastructure to create my own pkg repository, and I need
some non-default options), so I export the build machine's /usr/src &
/usr/obj to the production machines during the ports builds, as well.

That said, I don't try to do anything with respect to MK_TOOLCHAIN -- in
normal use, the production machines don't have /usr/src or /usr/obj at
all anyway.

In any case, this has generally been working for me for many years.
