You probably want to: make install DESTDIR=...
and do your packaging from the software installed in the destination

If you want to you could also create a target-specific file in sntp/loc/
that would only build the parts you wanted and put them in the location
in DESTDIR that you want.  That will probably expose some bugs because
you'd be the first known "user" of that capability.
