Where do they point?

So running make-kpkg binary-arch, doesn't build a useful kernel and
header package set?

Well I must admit I don't build custom kernels for my main computers.  I
only do so far a router I work with at work, and that one I do by
patching and changing the source package since I run it through a mini
build server.

You should not need the linux-headers-2.6.18-6 when using make-kpkg as
far as I can tell, although perhaps make-kpkg isn't always doing the
right thing when building from source.  Not sure about that.
