Set 'do_clean := NO' in /etc/kernel-pkg.conf.  I have in the past
modified the config slightly and rebuilt the package with the same
revision #.  Just be aware that you will clobber your existing kernel
and need an immediate reboot.

If you are on one machine, it may or may not be worth it.  When you
deploy a kernel across 20 machines, it certainly worth it to have
a package.
