It can be used like that, but for a single package, it's a bit complex.
If you use the regular images, then you can create a "lazy" package.
Just create a normal package and then modify the makefile like this:

The package will not be added to the rootfs, however, it will not be built
by default either. So you need to run "ptxdist targetinstall <pkg-name>" to
build it.
