As for building 2.4.27 powerpc kernels :

  sudo apt-get install kernel-source-2.4.27
  svn export .../trunk/kernel-2.4/powerpc/kernel-patch-powerpc-2.4.27 /path/to/kernel-patch-powerpc-2.4.27
  cd /path/to/kernel-patch-powerpc-2.4.27
  sudo apt-get build-dep kernel-patch-powerpc-2.4.27
  dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -us -uc
