That's what I'm starting to think too. I was trying to avoid doing a 
full build - not because the build itself is a problem but because it 
will take hours to do the cloning of all the repos into a NFS drive.

I wonder if I can a build from an existing set of repos and then "steal" 
the output directory ...
