Ah - fgrep bin-install <(man packages) reveals what I had overlooked
before. Sorry. The man-page doesn't quite say if the bin-install
propagates down to transitively required packages, which was the main
thing I was after - I'll have to try it and see. My guess is if
'make bin-install' doesn't propagate down, DEPENDS_TARGET=bin-install
will. Looking at bsd.pkg.mk it appears they should be equivalent.
Thank you both for the pointer.
