Is there any chance that we could make 'do_populate_sysroot'

sensible since this is running on the builder, so we could just have:

    PS_DEPENDS += "foo bar"

or if you want to spell it out:

    PS_NATIVE_DEPENDS += "foo bar"
I agree with stripping out the task piece, I was planning to work
something out with that. We could do with this cleanup in other places

Not all have the form -native (we have some -cross) and I think that
removing that would be a step too far and make it much less clear what
these things were doing.
