Hi, I've reworked the patch a bit to fix a few minor nits, including
breaking installation from an indivisual module directory (e.g.
`cd /sys/dev/netif/re && make -n install' would install to /).
I think that the check in kernel-installable target
  (!defined(DESTKERNDIR) || ${DESTKERNDIR} == /boot)
is overkill; just setting DESTDIR to elsewhere can avoid overwriting
the real kernel installation, so you wouldn't do so with a variable with
longer name.  If fact, we can set the default DESTDIR for vkernel to
/var/vkernel and we can save some keystrokes.

Please review/test attached patches and/or tell me if you like one or
both of them.
