build from RO source tree?

Is there a make option for building from a read-only kernel source,
possibly by doing a pre-pass to create a mess of symlinks?

Something like

        (chdir $readonly_sourceroot && find . -type d ) \
        | xargs -n5 mkdir
        (chdir $readonly_sourceroot && find . -type f ) \
        | xargs -i ln -s $readonly_sourceroot/{} {}

but as a configure option of some kind.
