make-kpkg kernel_image fails


I tried to compile linux-2.0.21 (manually tar'ed to
/usr/src/kernel-source-2.0.21 with a symbolic link to /usr/src/linux).
So I invoked kernel-package-2.03 using the command 

   make-kpkg -r kernel-image-2.0.21-Custom.1.i386.deb kernel_image
This broke, however, with the following messages:  

  make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernel-source-2.0.21/arch/i386/lib'
  make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernel-source-2.0.21'
  touch stamp-build
  make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernel-source-2.0.21'
  install -d -o root -g root -m 755 image-tmp/DEBIAN
  Error: Can't open display: -o
  make: *** [stamp-image] Error 1

This happened at the end of the compile. The kernel and the modules compiled
well, and I installed them the traditional way with no further problems.

I have to admit, that I configured a rather fat kernel with a lot of
modules. The same process (same linux-2.0.21, same Debian 1.1.8) for my old 
office 386 DX33 (4 MB -- I use it just as a print server and as a "news 
window" ;-) succeeded with no problems after 16 hours of compile time in a
"kernel-image-2.0.21-Custom.1.i386.deb", which installed fine with dpkg.
However, this was configured as a rather tiny kernel with only a few 

Am I missing something? Or is there a bug with kernel-package-2.03?
As a Slackware "convertit", I am new to Debian (and like it ...), but I am 
a rather experienced Linux user. Should I write a bug report? 
I have no problems with this situation, since kernel 2.0.21 is up and 
running now -- but not the standard Debian way. So any hint would be welcome.
