Consequently, and to close this bug, I'm replacing the paragraph with:

For the more adventurous there is an easy way to compile your own custom 
kernel on &debian;. Install the <systemitem
role="package">kernel-package</systemitem> tool and read the documentation in
<filename>/usr/share/doc/kernel-package</filename>. Alternatively,
you can also the kernel sources, provided in the <systemitem
role="package">linux-source-2.6</systemitem> package. You can make use of the
<literal>dep-dpkg</literal> target available in the sources' makefile for
building a binary package. There are some differences in these two
approaches, please consult the respective package's documentation.

IMHO the Release Notes document is not the place for any more detailed
information, the differences between these two approaches should be
documented in the respective packages.
