You can always compile on one machine for others in the network.
Just be sure that you compile for the target machine.
You then only have to copy the created kernel, its /lib/module/kernel-# modules; then generate the initrd file on the target, after modifing the /boot/grub/menu.1st file to add this new kernel to the bootable list.
Remember to ensure that your new kernel is booting from the targets correct disk (root) partition. Also it helps to do a "/sbin/depmod -a" before booting the target machine.
