kernel 2.4.23 packaging build error

echo "This was produced by kernel-package version ." > \
install -p    -o root -g root -m 644 .config          debian/tmp-image/boot/config-2.4.23
install -p    -o root -g root -m 644 conf.vars        debian/tmp-image/usr/share/doc/kernel-image-2.4.23/conf.vars
install: cannot stat `conf.vars': No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [real_stamp_image] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.23'
make: *** [kernel-image-deb] Error 2
I am following the verbose kernel building guide at; selected everything I needed (ntfs, correct soundcard, etc)

Built with the command line:
make-kpkg --revision=786:MyKernel2.4.23 kernel_image

I ran make-kpkg clean just before I ran that.

Its a fresh unpacking of the kernel source from

Is the .tar.gz i got messed up, or did I misconfigure something along the way?

I had the same problem with 2.4.23. I just compiled the old-fashioned way to solve the problem. If you get a fix, please post it.
