I looked around at a few packages (xorg, glib, gtk) and saw they used a 
really tidy makefile.
Theres a bunch of targets in packages/Makefile.autotools.in that you can 
use to automate the process of building packages.
I just rewrote the entire libusb.mk to take advantage of those targets.

Im just copying the format of the package install process in 
That and I think it looks better :)

The purpose of overriding the un/install to target is to stop the 
copying of static libs and docs to the target filesystem. Theyre still 
copied to the $(STAGING_DIR) though.

    $(call MESSAGE,"Installing to target")
    cp -dpf $(STAGING_DIR)/usr/lib/libusb*.so* $(TARGET_DIR)/usr/lib/
    $(STRIPCMD) $(STRIP_STRIP_UNNEEDED) $(TARGET_DIR)/usr/lib/libusb*.so*
    $(Q)touch $@
