I never ever used make-kpkg as making the kernel and installing it I found
quite easy [following instructions and stuff] -- it's not specific to Debian.
But a few times I wanted to just add packages so all I did was

cd [current linux kernel dicrecory - usually /usr/src/linux]
make menuconfig
make dep
make modules
make install_modules

then it worked. Heck, that's the way NVidia adds stuff to kernel :)
