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)
make clean
make dep
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-#.#.##

(edit lilo.conf)

I've never tried the 'make install' ..on the kernel at least
