	I finally installed the kernel-package as you suggested.  I was
hoping first to find out where my problem was coming from with the
non-Debian specific kernel compile procedures.  I am back to square one
after trying `make-kpkg --revision custom.1.0 kernel-image'.  It poops out
at exactly the same place.  

	I am at my wits end.  This is basically a paint by numbers procedure
for me.  I follow the instructions and do what I'm told.  I don't have a
deep understanding of all the pieces that come together to produce a kernel. 
I am especially frustrated that I compiled a kernel a few months ago with no
problems.  I resubmit the error output in the hopes that someone can help me
get to the bottom of this, or point me to other resources to which I might
turn (I have already posted to comp.kernel.sources without result).  I would
really like to get sound support into the kernel.

	Please note the following highlights from the following output.  I
do not have encaps on my system (`find / -iname encaps', `type encaps',
'file encaps' all negative).  To my mind, this means that the `else'
clause should be selected rather than the `then' clause of the `if'
statement (thus sidestepping the curious illegal `-k' option).  It remains a
mystery to me why I get this error even if I use the old .config file (no
sound support) which was used to compile the kernel I currently run.  What
could I have possibly changed on my system that is causing me this grief ?

	Any help would be greatly appreciated.  If less abbreviated output,
or other info (config files, directory listings, etc) is required, please
let me know.  Here is the standard output:
