On my side, I work more with 'scp' rather than NFS. So, I use

  ./gnulib-tool --create-testdir --with-tests --dir=/tmp/testdir1 copy-file

and then dispatch a build to a number of build machines

  multibuild testdir1 linux linuxmips32 linuxmips64 linuxppc32 linuxppc64 \
                      linuxsparc32 linuxsparc64 linuxhppa linuxia64 \
                      macosx macosx64 freebsd64 openbsd49 netbsd51 \
                      aix51-cc hpux11.00-cc irix65-cc solaris7-cc solaris8-cc \
                      solaris9-cc solaris10x86-cc solaris11x8632 solaris11x8664 
                      cygwin1.7.9 mingw2009 msvc9

Each of the identifiers corresponds to a machine description that describes
how to reach the machine via 'ssh', what environment variables to set
(from PATH to CPPFLAGS), and what options to pass to 'configure'. Then I can
sit back and watch the log files accumulate.
