This implies you are already using a central build host? Matthew's reply
was talking about replicating build-depends packages if you build on
each host separately.

The advantage for me for using poudriere has been I use one machine to
build 8.x 9.x and 10.x packages with a few flavours of each, its in a
nice easy to use form and builds the repos (which I serve via nginx) and
it handles all the jails/updating etc for me. Nothing I couldnt do
manually sure but saves me time and effort. I just need to remember to
check for new ports options from time to time.
