Building/installing over NFS worked.

And then I shot myself in the foot.

Due to '-g -O0' the bootsector stuff got too big.
So I commented out that part of the Makefile, during build.
And ran install, which installed wrong/corrupt files in /boot, and I got
stuck in BTX. :(

But after some repairing with a boot-stick, and some ZFS voodoo, I
installed correct bootloaders. And things are humming away.
