While we are here, from user point of view, it would be nice, if targets
did the same thing in both operation modes, with destdir or without.
That is: if I specify USE_DESTDIR=full, it is nice, if "make install"
does install package, though with additional destdir stage. Same for package.
Currently there's a subtle difference, which forces to choose a different
value for DEPENDS_TARGET and INSTALL_TARGET, if you want to have safer
(USE_DESTDIR=full) mode of operation.
Maybe the whole part can be redesigned in a way to allow cross-building.
