make dependall vs. install

While watching the output of, I'm noticing there are still two
passes over the source tree that could be combined, I think. The
dependall pass builds stuff, and later the install pass installs it.
While that may have made sense when installing into DESTDIR=/ was
common, it doesn't really for installing in a staging directory. None of
the executables that are installed are run anyway, since the tool
versions are used instead. So combining dependall + install into
dependinstall or something like that might save some build time. Right?
