Yes.  But asking to make a package is not what you want; you want to ask
that the package be made and installed:

  make package-install

But that was right - I didn't want to install the package on the build
box. So here we go - cpu cycle burning time :-)

Each package's dependencies will be installed though (which in the case of a meta package is ~the whole thing).

As Greg says, a chroot (pkg_comp perhaps) wlil help a lot.
