Well, it's an old known problem caused by inconsistency of
KERNEL_SUFFIXES handling between src/etc/Makefile (for GENERIC etc) and
src/distrib/common/Makefile.mdset (for md image ones), but they are
too hard to read for me...
sgimips has had the same problem for ecoff ones.

Hmm, because they use
>>MDSET_SUFFIXES.-= aout create-aout
for multiple kernels?
I prefer netbsd-FOO.aout.gz names than netbsd.aout-FOO.gz ones,
so I think we should fix src/etc/Makefile.
Anyway, this problem should be handled in another PR
because it isn't shark specific.
