Now I see, I've been trying the OpenTC snapshot from 30/06/2006 which is 
apparently missing Makefile in l4/kernel/.

Well, for me it looks like the Makefiles in the listed directories get 
called with the install target and this also applies for 
l4/kernel/Makefile. But I cannot find an install target in the Fiasco 

% grep install l4/kernel/fiasco/Makefile
.PHONY:         man install clean cleanall fiasco.builddir.create fiasco \

% make -C l4/kernel/fiasco install
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/l4/kernel/fiasco'
make: Nothing to be done for `install'.
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/l4/kernel/fiasco'

I meant the installation which is done by the Linux build system and 
installs the kernel image in the /boot directory along with 
configuration and symbol files and creates appropriate symlinks.
