Right.  So you do the "build" part and not the "install" part, and
copy the kernel to the appropriate spot.

"It" is the kernel.  A file named "kernel".  If you follow the first
kernel-building procedure in the section (currently) number 9.3, then
instead of the final step ("make install"), just try "ls kernel".
