I think building the kernel should imply the modules too. A separate 
"modules" keyword is fine to to just build modules and not kernel, but 
then maybe a keyword to just build kernel and modules would/could be 
useful too.

That reminds me that my uncommitted has a installkernel=conf to 
"Install kernel built by kernel=conf to DESTDIR" which does a 
make install in the kernelbuildpath. Yes, a keyword for installing the 
modules would be fine too, but maybe the install of kernel should imply 
the modules too.

(More FreeBSD examples: "buildkernel" make target also rebuilds kernel 
modules. "installkernel" moves running kernel directory to kernel.old and 
also installs the kernel modules. "reinstallkernel" target installs kernel 
modules without saving originals. I already mentioned NO_MODULES in 
earlier email.)
