Playing with source packages isn't normal.  It used to be much worse
(2.6.8 in sarge involved building multiple packages, one which depended
on the other).  The package is designed to make the life of the kernel
image developers easy, not to make the life of people doing weird things
for themselves easier.

You should be installing the linux-source-x.x.x package instead and
using make-kpkg to build custom kernels.  The source package (rather
than the linux-source-x.x.x binary package) is not meant to make custom
