Why not ~/soekris. Place it in your own home directory under soekris.

If you can write to /usr/obj/ then buildworld will use /usr/obj/ as the 
prefix and continue with the full path to the sources you are builing. 
Normally you end up with a /usr/obj/usr/src/.... but if you put the 
sources in your own home directory should get something like:

Speaking of which, you know you can buildworld as a mere mortal if you 
can write to $DESTDIR? No need to be root until installworld.
