Yes. I know those targets exist as per policy. Thats doesn't mean
anything though. Normaly the binary-* targets call the configure and
build target and then you are back to square one.
The problems with kernel-patch/image packages I saw were that it loops
in make oldconfig if the arch is wrong and no .config is provided.
Does binary-indep work without running make oldconfig?

To do for the kernel-patch/image packages. Some packages had bugs
against this and aparently been somehow fixed (like ppc) while other
haven't (like s390). But its not realy sarge critical.
