Hmm. I'm trying to build 2.6.20-rc2 on a little powerpc box with arch/powerpc/configs/linkstation_defconfig, and I get:
MODPOST vmlinux
ln: accessing `arch/powerpc/boot/zImage': No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [arch/powerpc/boot/zImage] Error 1
make: *** [zImage] Error 2

So, uh, are we forgetting to go into the right subdirectory to make the actual zImage, or what? If I'm just doing something wrong, I'd love to know what it is.

I'll follow up here on lkml if I diagnose this further. Thanks,

Followup: Yeah, it looks like it just doesn't know which format of zImage to produce for linkstation.

I'm not sure what image should be used by default. I guess it depends on the bootloader. Maybe default to uImage, as uBoot seems to be fairly common on these devices?
