[OpenWrt-Devel] concept of package/compile output

is there a special concept what the package/compile output (without V=s)

Sometime you see something like..
    make[3] -C package/libs/librpc compile
    make[3] -C package/network/utils/iwinfo compile
    make[3] -C package/system/uci compile
what corresponds to the make-rules
    make package/libs/librpc/compile
    make package/network/utils/iwinfo/compile
    make package/system/uci/compile

but also often
    make[3] -C feeds/packages/admin/htop compile
    make[3] -C feeds/packages/libs/file compile
    make[3] -C feeds/packages/net/wget compile
what does not corresponds to the expected but not existent target-rules
    make feeds/packages/admin/htop/compile
    make feeds/packages/libs/file/compile
    make feeds/packages/net/wget/compile
but to the rules:
    make package/feeds/packages/htop/compile
    make package/feeds/packages/file/compile
    make package/feeds/packages/wget/compile

Last ones I've found out by try and error...
OK, no I know it, but I'm probably not the first one :-)

Why does the output of the first examples is identical to the target
rule and on the others not?
Why is in the first examples the section (libs, network/utils, system)
part of the target rule and on the others not?
Suggestion: Maybe it could make things easier for all newbies that join
openwrt in future if the output reflect the real target rule, like in
the first examples.
