I guess you mean the "-n" option?

It would be worth a mention in the documentation (which one? is another
problem. Which is the "authoritative" one?).

Thanks for the tip. I had seen DEPENDS_TARGET when reading the mk files
but with the imbrications of the files, I was not sure it will do it
(I shall have mis-read it but I had concluded that "install" was always
called after DEPENDS_TARGET so that this would not do, as is, what I
wanted to do... Then I stumbled upon bin-install)
