it does not matter, make zImage will still create a uncompressed
vmlinux in the root of the source tree.  zImage on the other hand
creates a coff format image as well that are useful on some machines. 

for powermac you almost always want the uncompressed vmlinux though.  

am i the only one who thinks it would be cool to have at least sparc
style compressed images for yaboot?  (gzip -c vmlinux > vmlinuz)
