Try it like this: the pcmcia-cs directory should be in /usr/src/modules
(you can symlink to /usr/src/pcmcia-cs-3.1.20).  Make sure you used the
debian source (apt-get install pcmcia-source)
Then compile it by running "make-kpkg modules_image" from /usr/src/linux.  
That might help your compilation problems, and will automatically
generate the pcmcia-cs deb file.

You can compile the kernel similarly with "make-kpkg kernel_image".

You can find more detail in the Debian README in /usr/share/doc/pcmcia-cs.
