I usually run

 make-kpkg clean
 make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --initrd kernel-image kernel-headers

headers are often needed.

Regarding to what exactly you wish to do and regarding to the Debian or
Ubuntu version you're using you should run

apt-get update
apt-get install fakeroot build-essential crash kexec-tools makedumpfile
kernel-package kernel-wedge
apt-get build-dep linux
apt-get install libncurses5 libncurses5-dev libelf-dev asciidoc

to get all dependencies. This isn't needed always, but usually there's
nothing missing if you do install the dependencies this way.
