Running Package Makefiles Outside of Main Makefile

This may be a question more for BLFS-support, but since it has to do
with the livecd makefiles, I thought I'd post here with the assumption
that those who are more familiar with those makefiles "hang out" on this
I built LiveCD-6.2-pre3 and used it to install LFS-SVN. I'm now
continuing on with the BLFS build. Since I already had most of the BLFS
sources I want from the livecd build, I thought I would try to use the
makefiles to build Xorg-7.0. Additionally, I'm trying to help with the
development of BLFS for building Xorg-7.0.
I have two questions.
First, it is my understanding that installing 'makedepend-X11R7.0-1.0.0'
had to precede the installation of libMESA. The symlink and package are
in their respective directories, but I cannot find in the makefiles
where this package is installed. Tips?
Second question--acutally two.
It looks like I can run the Xorg-modular makefile outside of the main
makefile if I point to /scripts/functions. Is this correct?
I want to just see if I can build--not install yet--this package. So if
I edit the make file with the following steps will it build in my
/tmp/xorg-build directory? I also do not need to download or check sums.
1. mkdir /tmp/xorg-build
2. cp Xorg-modular/makefile /tmp/xorg-build
3. add a line ROOT=/xorg-build
4. comment the 'download' target
5. comment the 'symlinks' target
6. comment the "Y-%: SHA1SUMS target
7. comment all 'make install' lines
8. insure that I'm in /tmp/xorg build
I think that I'll also comment the MESA target and when I get ready to
build install that without the scripting.
Pointers? Complaints? Start over,dummy?
