Oops. I thought I had a GPL line at the header, but it's not. I have
updated it. Reload.

This new version includes some new features:

* reads $HOME/.make-kpkg.rc which is for users to set their own
variables (the ones define at the beginning of the script) so that
they don't have to directly edit the script
* uses bash' "command -v" to read the $PATH and find the location of
distcc and ccache. This way is better than calling the files directly
(especially for users who don't have root access)

Enjoy. I use this script all the time for my kernel. It's fully
interactive, so just answer yes or no questions. An example of how to
run it:

fakeroot ~/bin/make-kpkg.sh -1
# and then answer 3 questions...

This will make a kernel package that will have:
# note the -1 appended to the kernel name EXTRAVERSION
