Hmm, there are several ways. Off the top of my head:
VAR_DEFINED=(shell if test "X$$KVERS" = "X" -o "X$$KSRC" = "X" ... \
; then echo NO; fi)
ifeq ($(strip $(VAR_DEFINED)),)
# Hah! No variable defined!!
build configure clean binary modules modules_image modules_config\
@echo "You need to define the env variables KVERS ...
all build: configure
# Builds the binary package.
# debian.config contains the current idea of what the image should
Look at /usr/lib/kernel-package/rules for other tricks.
