If you read /usr/src/Makefile, you will find the following
# The user-driven targets are:
# buildworld - Rebuild *everything*, including glue to help do
# installworld - Install everything built by "buildworld".
# world - buildworld + installworld.
# buildkernel - Rebuild the kernel and the kernel-modules.
# installkernel - Install the kernel and the kernel-modules.
# reinstallkernel - Reinstall the kernel and the kernel-modules.
# kernel - buildkernel + installkernel.
I don't see an installkernel as an option for world.
