Last time I checked only x86 had 'make install'. I regularly build
natively on ppc(32|64) and sparc64, and none of them implement
'make install' AFAIK. And on ARM I move the kernels over to a tftp
server for network boots, again w/o 'make install'.

Not that 'make install' is difficult. All it does it hand over to
/sbin/installkernel or something like that.

In the context of .config changes, 'make oldconfig' with 'select the
default' must IMO result in a working kernel similar to the previous
one. Anything else is madness or arrogance.
