SubjectRe: Error in documentation?
It does appear that the documentation regarding this is out of date.
However, you can still install modules to a given location by:

INSTALL_MOD_PATH="/path/to/modules" make modules_install

Had to dig through the Makefile for that, though it may actually be
documented somewhere.

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
