Well, it looks to me like the problem is that you have
kernel-image-2.2.19-chrp installed, and it conflicts with your new
kernel-image-2.2.19_custom.2.2.19g_powerpc.  The problem may be that both
the kernels have the same version number.

My guess would be (unless you can just uninstall kernel-image-2.2.19-chrp
which would be simplest but might leave you kernelless) that you should use
the --append_to_version option of 'make-kpkg' to make it something like
2.2.19myown.  But I've never used this option myself, so I could be wrong.
