cvs commit: src/release Makefile

This talk of KERNELS reminds me of a patchset I've had for quite a

Currently, 'make buildkernel' builds all the kernels you list in
KERNCONF, but installs only one, to /boot/kernel.  I've patched my
tree so it installs all of them into /boot/${KERN_IDENT}.  The reason
why I haven't committed this is that I want the loader to present a
list of kernels at boot time, and I don't know enough Forth to
implement that myself.

Ideally, the loader would grep each kernel and display its version
string in the menu; and there would be an rc.d script that links
/boot/kernel to $(dirname $(sysctl -n kern.bootfile)) so things like
zsh's kldload argument completion still work.
