You're not going to see any ALSA options in the main kernel
configuration; you should enable "sound card support" as a module, but
not any of the other sound modules. Then after you run 'make-kpkg
kernel-image', you can run 'make-kpkg modules-image' to produce an
extra .deb file that contains the ALSA modules.
