Right now, the user has to specify which target they want the project to build, and only those software that the project needs are installed. This is ofcourse, the needed behavior for each project.

But for testing purposes (for example when a change to a low-level program is made), we want to see how/if it affects the builds of all programs. One way is to manually add the higher-level programs, but as our library of installed software increases, we can't manually add/remove them.

Therefore, for such testing cases, it would be very useful to have a special target in `TARGETS.mk' (for example `build-all-high-level'). When this variable is given a value of `yes', then an simple Make command in `high-level.mk' can go and read all the software names from `versions.mk' and set them as a target to build (ignoring the two  `top-level-programs' and `top-level-python' variables).
