Well, I guess "the easy way" means you don't actually have to remember
anything - we can all do ./configure, make, make install, in our sleep - but
make-kpkg is pretty darn simple, and obviously avoids the problems you've run
into. So, no, there are no requirements that you use make-kpkg, but it _is_
easier (if you can remember the particular command line - I admit I do it
infrequently enough that I have to use man make-kpkg every time)
