I fairly often do make installs over amd+nfs,
a few gotchas to avoid getting caught on:
- I saw my link count break in /rescue so du exploded
(up by presumably about (137-1 x 4.7M )
(Cant remember why, I just fixed it)
- Chflags bit me (maybe I didnt have the right stuff in
/etc/exports on target. (I hate chflags. & often run chflags -R noschg / )
- If both might be i386, & target might < 686 eg 586 etc
avoid source host having any files lurking in /usr/obj
that were built while /etc/make.conf (& included files)
had a CFLAGS += -march=i686
Maybe practice on a local host first, where you can reach reset knob.
