Thanks for the clarification, but it begs the question:
     How should one install the initial system _before_ being able to rebuild
the kernel?

I am currently up and limping.  I used debootstrap to load the base system and
then debootstrap's shell to obtain a benh kernel.  The process was rough and
the machine is not yet sure-footed enough to attempt kernel building.
