as you've said it is not a problem at all tomorrow.

What you mean? common /usr/ports/distfiles

You may mirror it all if you wish and then NFS export.
But if you want to install lots of ports to many computers i would 
recommend building on one and then just make binary packages.

no idea what it is. have not use linux for 9 years, and before that few 
years using my own manual distro as anything else wasn't usable.
