Yeah, I misunderstood your question!

Synth is a repository builder, and so it is designed exactly for that. However
it is a "simplified" version of Poudriere, and while using Synth all machines
using its repository will share packages with the same personalizations.

I mean it is not possible to use Synth in the same way of Poudriere, to build
ports for different machines using different OPTIONS, FreeBSD versions, etc.
this is the only downside.
