The instructions have:

DEPENDS_TARGET=         package-install

which -- if I understand correctly -- builds package first and then 
installs it.

I am confused about why it is installed. Where is it installed if the 
MACHINE_ARCH (what-to-compile-for) is different from the native build 

Can you explain that in your howto?

Also where is the package placed? Does PACKAGES need to be defined for 
this specifically? (Or does it keep the native packages separate 
from the target packages?)

Thanks for your work on this.
