Since you are running Debian, you should:
apt-get install kernel-package libncurses5-dev

Then you can:
make-kpkg kernel_image

in a directory of kernel sources and you will get a nice shiny kernel
package built.  Dealing with kernel packages is _much_ easier to track
down changes than otherwise.  It ensures that you have the modules in
sync with the kernel, it makes it easy to uninstall old versions, and it
keeps the config file there for future reference.

Highly recommended.
