make installkernel

I'm trying to rebuild the kernel, and having performed the necessary
steps I need to run 'make installkernel'.

However, following a flawed [1] previous rebuild, I'm currently using
/kernel.old... Conseqeuntly, installing the kernel fails, as kernel.old
cannot be overwritten.

Where do I specify the destination for the backup of /kernel, as
performed by 'make installkernel' ??

Of course, I could reboot to a new copy of the current kernel.old, but
I'm curious... :)


[2] flawed = non-bootable :(
