You can start here:

For SHR builds:
If you update MACHINE=K7 in local.conf or auto.conf (if using SHR Makefile) 
and launch image build it will build new image in deploy/images/K7 with
right arch etc.

multimachine builds with same tmpdir are working fine so no need to
setup another environment (at least all -native builds are shared for
multimachine builds)
