I thought you were using make-kpkg?  It does all this for you when you
"build" the .deb package.

What are the diff's between the working 2.4.18 config and the new one?
Should it only be the RAID built-in?

Maybe start with the working config and do "make menuconfig" (or
whatever method you like) to add the RAID stuff, then try the make-kpkg
sequence again.

Note you should have a config in /boot corresponding to the
kernel-compile options (but there may be a config option to not use it?
I seem to recall there might be, but I have always had /boot/config-2.4.xx)

You can also read the kernel-package README.gz file if you haven't
already, to check you procedure using it, but your steps sound right to
