rolling vanilla kernel on Squeeze

System:          Squeeze
Current Kernel: vanilla built under Lenny long before
                 upgrading to Squeeze
Issue:           Seeing two extra .debs being built by make

I grabbed from kernel.org yesterday and rolled a kernel using
'make KDEB_PKGVERSION=custom.x.x deb-pkg'.  After running the make
script I ended up with a kernel .deb package, a headers .deb package,
and a libc-dev .deb package.  I've been rolling my own kernels for many
years and I've never ended up with anything but a single kernel .deb
file.  I don't use initrd nor module support.

What's the story on these two new .deb packages, and what do I do with
them, if anything?  Is it safe to go ahead and install the kernel
package?  What, if anything, do I need to do with the 2 new files?
Install them?  Copy then to /boot?  Ignore them?
