Yup! An option, I would think, is copying the appropriate config from 
/usr/share/kernel-package/Config (after installation of kernel-package of 
course) to .config in the dir you unpack the kernel-sources. Then start the 
config, disable all the things you know you don't need, and perhaps compile 
some much used stuff into the kernel rather than as module. Then, there's a 
really good howto at newbiedocs on sourceforge (no, I don't have the URL 
handy, I'm connected through a mobile phone... :-) ).
