There's a multitute of oppinions about make-kpkg.  We also use Debian
as our only Linux platform, and build from "original sources".
make-kpkg allows you to do this and get kernel.deb's out the other

I use it for kernels that will be distributed to many machines (ie Lab
Standard Workstation kernels), because having .deb's I can put in a
local package repository and have people apt-get is very
convenient. For single use kernels like the proposed diskless setup,
and my NFSrooted installer I just use make as I find it simpler.
