AFAIK, there are no other targets that include the bootwrapper code
other than zImage. It was a very nice starting point for me to explain
the differences. If you don't want to ask questions and have me try to
further clarify things I cannot help.

The 'cuImage' target as I described is *basically* the following:

$ make zImage
$ mkimage -A ppc -O linux -T kernel -C gzip -a 400000 -e 400010 -n
'Linux-2.6.18' -d arch/powerpc/boot/zImage arch/powerpc/boot/cuImage
