I don't know the details, but could you just give kernel-package a try
please?  I find it a much better way to build kernels on Debian.  I have
hardly ever used "make deps; make install" stuff on my own computer.  :-)
The kernel-image-2.2.17_custom.1.0_i386.deb for example that you can
create with kernel-package allows you to safely install and remove kernels
from your system.  Yes, you still use kernel-package even if you use the
kernel source provided by the kernel-source-2.2.17 package.

So, please just give it a try and see if it solves the problem.  If not,
come back and ask again.
