If I put the overo-oe folder under /opt, would I install it as root?  But then wouldn't all of the files be owned by root, and other users wouldn't have access?  The way I have it currently, all of the files are owned by my user account since I installed them. 

Now that the overo-oe folder is installed complete with bitbake, org.openembedded.dev, and everything else, can that just be moved to /opt?  What about file permissions and ownership?

Admittedly I have a little experience with Linux on a desktop, but not really in a multi user environment.  I'll have to look into nfs mounts.  That would work on our isolated network at least.

You can keep the build in one location then each user just needs to set

verdex, overo builds - we tend to make an alias for them in .bashrc like:
alias
overo="/home/gum/overo/tmp/deploy/glibc/addons/arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi-angstrom-overo-devshell"

a simple nfs mount of the build (/opt was a good suggestion) on each
machine should be OK.

good luck,
