In this case, the <install> target will get <build>no -- since usage
requirements are propagated all the way up. Do you suggest that 'install' is
specially coded to still install the other targets?

What precisely are you trying to achieve with <build>no in properties? Do you
want to avoid compiling lots of source files that depend on missing libraries
and won't likely compile anyway?
