"tasks" concept into the dpkg-buildpackage "target" conecept,
one-for-one compile, configure, install, package, sign. in between

already in the openembedded environment and are prooobably similar to
what dpkg-cross does.... *scratches head*...
is this easy to undeststand? i'm a little confused at the lack of
