[Buildroot] installing binaries

Hi, 

	I've been having a hard time figuring out how buildroot decides to
	install binaries. Using 2009.02 or 2009.05, I often find that the
	binaries for the packages I've selected do not make it into
	project_build_ARCH/myproject/root

	Is there a way to tell buildroot to go through every selected
	package and copy the binaries to the image? Even if I have to delete
	some target file in each folder, it would be better then the other
	two alternatives I've come up with:
	1) copying all the binaries to the root by hand
	2) modifying the prefix in the Makefiles for all packages and doing
	'make install' for each one individually


	I think I get all the packages if I make distclean and then make,
	but many packages fail to compile the first time (like util-linux
	which always requires a lot of hacking) and I hate to loose my
	modifications via make distclean

	Trying 'make clean' is futile, as most packages fail to clean and
	make clean always errors out half-way through.

	I've been working on this for a few days now, so I appreciate any
	tips...
