It's a specific command for a specific use (checking why a particular
package does not show up in menuconfig), not something that's in any way
meant to be run globally.
If you find your package doesn’t show up in menuconfig, try the
following command to see if you get the correct description:
TOPDIR=$PWD make -C package/<name> DUMP=1 V=99
Which part of this is unclear, and how could we change the wording to
make it more clear?
