Ah ha... I wondered how to do that. But didn't bother much because a
full build, when triggered, will run both the targets.

But this is good to know.

I definitely want to move to the new build setup, but it is the lack of
time which has held me.

Maybe I'll just do it once and for all (move to new dh). Lets keep the
bug open. Whichever build setup we choose, this bug will be closed back
once the build is fixed.
