IOW, install the "kernel-package" package, if you want to do it the
"Debian way" (e.g. make .deb's), or do the normal thing like on i386,
which is to download the source, do "make <config type of choice", and
then "make dep", "make", "make modules".

FYI, on sparc/ultrasparc, there is no "make bzimage". If you don't use
the .deb creation, you just run make, gzip the vmlinux, and move it to
/boot/ along with the System.map. Afterwhich run "make modules_install".
