RE: 2.2.18 kernel-images available for testing

No, the tar.gz file contains the sources used to produce the .deb file
excluding the bits that are contained in other Debian packages e.g.
kernel-sources, m68k patches etc.

If you look the .dsc file you will see it contains the following:

Build-Depends: gcc272, kernel-source-2.2.18, kernel-patch-2.2.18-m68k,
debhelper, bzip2, console-tools

This lists all the other packages that are required to build the
kernel-image package using the debian/rules in the .tar.gz file. In addition
to these packages the build-essential package should be installed as well.
