[ Hmm... cpio-mode seems to build fine for me (with a crapload of
  warnings, tho).  Can you send me the error log so I can try and
  fix it?  ]

I don't think `make` can do exactly that, but there's no doubt that we
should be able to provide a way to build just a particular package
(maybe the target would have to be called something else than just
`gnorb`, e.g. `compile-gnorb`).  It's probably not that hard.
