Umm, are we still talking about having make-kpkg doo something
feasible? The original suggestion was to make it build the -all
packages; that does not call build. the source package does not need
things to be configured. The headers packages doo , because it would
not make sense for them not to.

Well, garbage in, garbage out. You can' get anything correct
out of a kernel build if the arch is wrong; and make-kpkg
can't yet do magic or read minds.

No, since kerel headers are useless without running oldconfig.
