Same thing I did. I didn't read all the release notes to find out that
the kernel moved. I didn't look for it somewhere else. In fact I even
failed to look carefully at the make/compile output just a few lines above.
I was told to find it in /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage and voila!
there it was!
And it makes sense to have it there, too. That way you can (in the coming
future) compile for multiple platforms and not have kernel images get mixed
up. Those doing the pre-alpha development now probably needed this just
to get the ports ramped up into the current levels. Some of the code is
apparently even there already.
