Creating a Custom Kernel on Debian

Wow, this is odd!  I untared the linux- package, created a 
symlink to it, called linux, and installed a git copy of Speakup to it. 
  When I go in and do make menuconfig, it tried to take settings out of 
the config file for my current kernel from /boot!  Then, I went to move 
that and it tried to take them from arch/x86/config or 
whatever....What's going on here?  Whatever happened to just plain 
custom-kernel building?  LOL...Unless this is a Debian thing but I don't 
recall reading about it.
