Then you will be pleased to hear that kbuild 2.5 supports precisely
that model. It has an install menu which lets you specify the name of
the install kernel, whether to install and .config, and the
names to install them under. It even has an config entry for a
post-install script.

After setting up these variables (only needs to be done once)

CONFIG_INSTALL_SCRIPT_NAME=joe /etc/yaboot.conf

Your build process collapes to

make -j defconfig installable && sudo make install

It does not get any simpler than that!
