    Ninja: Add `$subdir/{test,install,package}` targets · 02789894
    Brad King authored
    With the Makefile generator one can use `cd $subdir; make install` to build and
    install targets associated with a given subdirectory.  This is not possible to
    do with the Ninja generator since there is only one `build.ninja` file at the
    top of the build tree.  However, we can approximate it by allowing one to run
    `ninja $subdir/install` at the top of the tree to build the targets in the
    corresponding subdirectory and install them.
    This also makes sense for `test`, `package`, and other GLOBAL_TARGET targets.
    It was already done for `all` by commit v3.6.0-rc1~240^2~2 (Ninja: Add
    `$subdir/all` targets, 2016-03-11).
