and both buld_<ARCH> and target_<ARCH> ends up as the same thing.

but if I understand you, you'd like target_<TARGET_NAME> or
target_<ARCH>_<TARGET_NAME> so we can build for more than one target?

=> Actually I'd like

and under that I'd
like to put all things 
related to that target
including "root",
the generated file system(s)
the build for u-boot and
linux so I can have 
several configurations.
Actually every package
which have their own
configuration file should
be in a target specific
directory, so maybe even
build_<ARCH> should be used when you can use the same package for several targets.

Landley mentioned dependencies but it shouldn't be that hard if we drop 
that headache.
