It is possible to use %_sub target to build specific component, like:
"make lib/librte_eal_sub" will only compile eal library.
This requires config done, and dependent libraries built in advance.
Can be used for all components, like "make drivers/net/null_sub"

A component can be excluded from build via config file:
"make T=... config" will create config file (build/.config by default)
it is possible to edit it and disable components, via setting "=n"
