a couple of months ago i split the mega `build' target up into a bunch
of smaller targets. the point of this was so that it was really easy
to restart a build at any one of them... it was addressing a PR as
well as a N year issue i and many others i've talked to have had.
this is no longer possible due to the simplification and collapsing
of targets. eg, `do-build' is basically what was:
[i've omitedd do-domestic because it was useless, and do-whatisdb is
probably fine in it's current form]
having these as separate steps was *REALLY* useful. please put it back.
you can still use the make .for logic, just give them all first class
