Sure. The documentation is the source, at least m68k managed to get it

It needs two things in debian/rules.real:
- A target which installs the image. Example:
| install-image_s390_$(FEATURESET)_$(FLAVOUR)_plain_image
|         install -m644 '$(DIR)/arch/s390/boot/image' $(INSTALL_DIR)/vmlinuz-$(REAL_VERSION)

- Maybe a definition for template overrides. The type currently uses a
  copy of the kpkg templates which needs some additional information.
| install-image_powerpc_$(FEATURESET)_$(FLAVOUR)_plain_templates: ARG_KIMAGE = vmlinux
| install-image_s390_$(FEATURESET)_$(FLAVOUR)_plain_templates: ARG_BOOTLOADER = zipl
