On these machines, kernel building takes hours.

Well... you do the build on a faster machine and copy the binary?

that requires some other dfly machine, does it not?

    Yes.  It should theoretically only require the sources tar'd up on the CD
    to build a new kernel.  That is one of the things that we have to test
    for this release... can you unpack the sources stored on the ISO in a
    chroot'd environment and actually build the kernel without the rest of
    /usr/src ?  Inquiring minds want to know!
