You might try it using the 'recommended' way to build kernels, i.e.,
kernel-package.  The new Install Manual gives a little tutorial of
using kernel-package, and of course the package's own documentation
are most complete.

OTOH, I don't think anything in the kernel-package way will create the
/dev entries....
