Speeding up Kernel compiles using make-kpkg

Is there any way to pass the "-j <jobs>" option to make when building
kernels using make-kpkg ?

Currently, it takes approx. 35 minutes to build the 2.4.3 kernel on a
Pentium 166 system that I am preparing to use as a firewall.

I am hoping that by passing the "-j" option to make, kernel builds on
this P166 system will take less time than the 35 minutes it currently
takes. But after reading the docs on kernel-package and the man page I
can't figure out how to pass extra command line options to the
invocation of make.
