May be you wish to build debian kernel like a mainstream with all include?

1. Install 2.6.14-amd64-smp kernel
2. Download source package for 2.6.14-amd64-smp
3. cat /boot/config.2.6.14-amd64-smp > /usr/src/2.6.14-amd64-smp/.config &&
cd /usr/src/2.6.14-amd64-smp/ && patch -p1 < 2.6.14-vs-patch && make
oldconfig & make menuconfig (to check modules)
4. (later I used "make-kpkg --initrd kernel-image" and build my own kernel
with ONLY difference to debian kernel - vserver applied )

I ve done this for i386 2.6.12 kernel - you can try for your one.
It is not very good to make kernels with reduced ammount of drivers - because
they will not be portable across different hardware.
