With 'installkernel', the first kernel listed in KERNCONF is installed
as the default (/boot/kernel), and subsequent kernels are installed with
the kernel name included in the path (/boot/kernel.${INSTKERNNAME}).  In
both cases (source-based upgrades and with pkgbase), the behavior will
remain the same.
