Subject: changing DEPENDS_TARGET

right now dependencies are installed via "make $DEPENDS_TARGET", which
defaults to "install". Now it one of the required pkgs was built but
subsequently removed, a "make install" will do nothing, esp. not install
the pkg (again).

I propose to change this by defaulting DEPENDS_TARGET to "reinstall"
instead of "install", for obvious reasons.

Are there any serious objections?

This would stop problems like the one described in PR pkg/10629 once and
for all.
