IIRC this is covered in the handbook somewhere. A solution is to mount
the /usr/src tree on your PIII from the p100 using NFS and then after
building the world on the pIII, install the world on the p100. This is
v oversimplified and I haven't done it for a long time, so check the
handbook for more. I'll try and find it now...
Ok that wasn't too painful, it's in chapter 21/cutting edge:
