Certainly, but wouldn't it be a good idea for the Makefile to symlink it
into the source tree root? It has happened to me several times that I
accidentally took the wrong file, and the machine crashed on boot-up.
After building an i386 kernel, the Makefile might just link
/usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage to /usr/src/linux/zImage-i386.
