building 2.6.x kernel on Athlon

I was wondering if anybody has successfully built a 2.6.x kernel on an
Athlon chip? I've tried a couple of times but got errors (outline below)
so was wondering if you could let me of any special requirements.

I've not full details (now in Win to send this!) to hand but I started with, IIRC, 2.4.18-bf (off
the netinst) running unstable on a Intel chip etc, swapped out the mobo
ie just kept the HD. Still booted (unlike WinXP!), a couple of apt-get
upgrade/dist-upgrades recently (eg to gcc 4.0.1 IIRC). Tried to compile
2.9.6 and 2.9.11 (following 7.1.1 of the Debian Ref) but both give numerous warnings/errors at the (mmm not sure what the -486 flag is about....):

fakeroot make-kpkg --append_to_version -486 --initrd --revision=whatEver kernel_images

such as

pointer targets in passing argument 1 of 'use_config' differ in signedness

'restore_flags' is deprecated (declared at include/linux/interrupt.h:78)

finally falling over at

  CC [M]  drivers/char/isicom.o
drivers/char/isicom.c:154: error: array type has incomplete element type
drivers/char/isicom.c:155: error: array type has incomplete element type
make[3]: *** [drivers/char/isicom.o] Error 1
make[2]: *** [drivers/char] Error 2
make[1]: *** [drivers] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.11'
make: *** [stamp-build] Error 2

Any ideas on what I've done wrong?
