: Also, as far as I know, there's no convenient way to rebuild a

:    cd /usr/src/lib/libc && arch sparc64 make
: It would be nice if there were a better mechanism for this that's
: integrated into the build system.

I do one of the following:

(1) env TARGET=arm make buildworld -DNO_CLEAN


(2) env TARGET=arm make buildenv
$ cd lib/libc && make

These both work out well enough in practice for me.  I've wanted a
target that was 'reworld' that just did an 'all' and maybe a few other
things, but I've never had the time to polish this up (had it in a
couple of trees that I lost due to disk failure).

I do agree it would be nice if there was some way to do 'all' for a
subdirectory with a 'trust me, I know what I'm doing, so don't do all
that other stuff' flag.
