True. In my case, I chose to make a target for each binary package so that I
could build each binary package separately. I ended up with five sets of
commands, with some identical calls, like dh_install, and some that apply to
only one package, like dh_installemacsen, dh_installxfonts, etc. Instead, I
could have created one set of commands with appropriate -p, -a or -i options
