I'd just like to add a little data point to this discussion.

I just tried make build with an empty DESTDIR. My sources are supped
from at about 24th. Currently build fails
first because curses.h is not installed. Should the build target be
fixed or should curses.h be moved?

Later build fails when it tries to install things, because the
directory hierarchy has not been created. I did make distrib-dirs in
etc to get past this. I suppose build target should be fixed to do
this also?

When I left home the build was still runing. I'll report how it goes
when I get back home.

I would like to be able to cross compile the whole system so I'm
interested in these issues.
