Jeff - correct me if I'm wrong here.

I would just use the --scratch parameter to MTT itself and have two
separate scratch spaces for i386 and sparc, though it sounds like you
don't want that.

Using copydir should work as long as you are careful to keep i386 and
sparc binaries from being mixed up. Jeff can answer better, but you
will also need to be careful about having two MTT runs working in the
same scratch space, as I don't think we do anything to handle this.
