I don't think you screwed up, possibly just the main kernel source
doesn't take into account the differences between distributions.
when I compile from source and while I am not using kernel-package(most
of the time I use it) I do:
make menuconfig (for me, its easier then xconfig, xconfig exposues so many
more options even when they are greyed out, harder to sort through everything)
cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-#.#.##
I've never tried the 'make install' ..on the kernel at least
