Buildworld on flacky hardware

I previously wrote about buildworld failure, it turns out to be flacky 
hardware. Since then I have tried to reboot on every failure and start 
building againg. It compiles fine for a 3-5 hours, then fails at 
different places.

It seems that a new make buildworld does not pickup from where it 
failed, but deletes files at the beginning or something.

Is there a way to split the buildworld target into sub targets such as 
to not restart every time?

I know there is the -DNO_CLEAN option, but I'd prefer to build 
succesfully each subtarget rather than resume upon failure.

Thanks, Erik
