Maybe I'm getting old and risk-averse, but I would recommend
_against_ building your own kernel on a debian system.  Most packages
especially the kernel will become unupgradable and in a few months
or weeks time you'll save your $HOME, format the discs and reinstall
from bare metal. I'd recommend staying within one consistent debian
setup; if you want 2.6.37 ASAP, then upgrade from Testing to Unstable
and be a bit patient. Unstable's not so bad; some days some things
might not work, but they'll work again after the next upgrade.
