> It seems like passign the zImage files is probably wrong.  How about:

diff --git a/arch/powerpc/boot/Makefile b/arch/powerpc/boot/Makefile
index ccc25ed..146d898 100644
--- a/arch/powerpc/boot/Makefile
+++ b/arch/powerpc/boot/Makefile
@@ -390,7 +390,7 @@ $(obj)/zImage.initrd:	$(addprefix $(obj)/, $(initrd-y))
 	@rm -f $@; ln $< $@
 install: $(CONFIGURE) $(addprefix $(obj)/, $(image-y))
-	sh -x $(srctree)/$(src)/ "$(KERNELRELEASE)" vmlinux "$(INSTALL_PATH)" $^
+	sh -x $(srctree)/$(src)/ "$(KERNELRELEASE)" vmlinux "$(INSTALL_PATH)"
 # anything not in $(targets)
 clean-files += $(image-) $(initrd-) cuImage.* dtbImage.* treeImage.* \

Looks reasonable to me. Grant added this back in commit 29f1aff2 (powerpc:
Copy bootable images in the default install script) but the other archs have
gone in a different direction and created make zinstall targets.
