 The following targets may be useful to invoke from keyboard:  The following targets may be useful to invoke from keyboard:
 * "extract" to look at unmodified source  
 * "patch" to look at initial source  * **depends** to build and install dependencies
 * "configure" to stop after configure stage  * **fetch** to fetch distribution file(s)
 * "all" or "build" to stop after build stage  * **checksum** to fetch and check distribution file(s)
 * "stage-install" to install under stage directory  * **extract** to look at unmodified source
 * "test" to run package's self-tests, if any exist and supported  * **patch** to look at initial source
 * "package" to create binary package before installing it  * **configure** to stop after configure stage
 * "replace" to change (upgrade, downgrade, or just replace) installed package in-place  * **all** or **build** to stop after build stage
 * "deinstall" to deinstall previous package  * **stage-install** to install under stage directory
 * "package-install" to install package and build binary package  * **test** to run package's self-tests, if any exist and supported
 * "install" to install package  * **package** to create binary package before installing it
   * **replace** to change (upgrade, downgrade, or just replace) installed package in-place
   * **deinstall** to deinstall previous package
   * **package-install** to install package and build binary package
   * **install** to install package
   * **bin-install** to attempt to skip building from source and use pre-built binary package
   
   Cleanup targets (in separate section because of importance):
   
   * **clean-depends** to remove work directories for dependencies
   * **clean** to remove work directory
   * **distclean** to remove distribution file(s)
   * **package-clean** to remove binary package
   
   The following targets are useful in development and thus may be useful for an advanced user:
   
   * **makesum** to fetch and generate checksum for distributed file(s)
   * **makepatchsum** to (re)generate checksum for patches
   * **makedistinfo** to (re)generate *distinfo* file (creating checksums for distributed file and patches)
   * **mps** short for **makepatchsum**
   * **mdi** short for **makedistinfo**
   * **print-PLIST** to _attempt_ to generate correct packaging list
   (NB! It helps, but it _doesn't_ eliminate manual work.)
   
 For example, package updating looks like this:  For example, package updating looks like this:
 <pre>  
   [[!template id=programlisting text="""
