make-dpkg: Version number stays the same

Whenever I compile a new kernel, I give it a new version number with
--revision, thus:

  # make-kpkg --revision custom.2.3 kernel_image

...yet the version number of the resulting .deb package stays the same as
the first time I compiled that kernel version's source. In this example, it
would stay at custom.2.0, which was my first kernel 2.2.9 build.

Surely this isn't the right (documented) behavior? The man pages for
make-kpkg aren't much help.

Many thanks to Brad for help with kernel compilation and my ne.o module
problem. It worked fine.
