Tested. This works as far as not overriding root's ~/bin/installkernel
if it exists, but it fails to give precedence to an explicit command-line
INSTALLKERNEL=... over the built-in fallbacks. I don't see an easy way
to fix that without first consolidating all archs' INSTALLKERNEL handling
into the top-level Makefile.

Not using make install and just invoking your own install script directly
works, so I'm not sure this is worth the trouble (unless you can unify all
archs' INSTALLKERNEL handling as a side-effect / cleanup).
