ahem. I knew this patch would be controversial ;)
There are also few point I'm not entirely happy wit them.

This was my first (naive) though, but it ended up like this:
---
make: *** No rule to make target `host-toolchain-buildroot-source',
needed by `source'.  Stop.
---
On the very first attemp, I even got the same error for
'dirs-source'... which a non-sense!
That's why I split dependencies that are packages from the rest of the
ones in BASE_TARGETS.

Agree, that's why I prefer post this RFC.
I may not have all thing in mind... and I'm not a make guru...

Ok, let me know about your progress
