which "make" target simply builds the scripts/dtc/dtc executable?

for a ARM target you could try to (PowerPC or MIPS should work too)

export ARCH=arm
make mxs_defconfig # random arm defconfig
make dtbs

this should build the devicetree compiler and the devicetree sources,
but AFAIK newer kernel versions uses the dtc from the Host system. So
it's possible that the dtc is omitted.
