If you're building on arm for installation on arm, it will be fine -
but then you could just use the existing ARM kernel packages. You'll
need to make some changes to the kernel config. 

For cross-building, the Debian packaging might need a few tweaks.

Other users build kernels direct from kernel.org using Emdebian
toolchains.

It isn't necessary to have the kernel as a package - some devices have
a completely separate storage mechanism for the kernel itself, so a
bare zImage is more useful than a .deb.
