Have we resolved this?  "replace" with USE_DESTDIR=yes (default) used to
reliably generate packages.  While one can argue that packages shouldn't
be generated by default, it's a regression to change replace without
adding a package-replace target that guarantees both a binary package
and replace.  At least from the viewpoint that having binary packages
arund is good, which I think is > 50% of replace users, perhaps 90%.
