If you need to recompile the kernel, use debian package 'kernel-package'
to manage your work. For a config file, start with the config file of
a kernel that you know and like, and edit it to include the things you
want, e.g. ACPI. The man page for kernel-package is a must read.

It may not be necessary to compile a new kernel. Look to see if ACPI
support is compileable as module.
