It is if you know the magic incantation for System.map.

I've never been sure what 'make install' does, or what it might do in the
future. I've always just installed according to the README. After doing
this by hand way too many times, and having ferretted out the truth about
System.map, I wrote the following bash script:

here=`pwd`
kernel=`basename $here`
make modules_install >/dev/null
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/bzImage-$kernel
cp System.map /boot/System.map-$kernel
cp .config /boot/config-$kernel
lilo

I put it in /usr/src and use it as follows:

cd /usr/src/linux-xx.xx.xx
sudo ../install

This does everything you need, with the exception of editing lilo.conf. Note
that the name of the top level directory is the name of the install, so you
would probably not want to do 'cd /usr/src/linux' where linux is a symlink.

This is x86-specific, obviously.
