(That's "bash: make: command not found", right?)

The `make' command is (surprise!) in the make package, so make sure
that's installed.  (dpkg -l make)  I recommend `make menuconfig' over
plain make config, too.

While you're at it, install kernel-package and read its README, which
explains how to build a Debian package with your new kernel, which is
very useful.
