/proc/net/wireless missing after kernel recompile

Three partitions on my machine for debian:


Starfire & Beast_Boy are nearly identical w/ 2.6.6
After a recompile to enable /proc/net/wireless, the file is non-existant

I use make-kpkg kernel-image. After installing the new kernel image, /boot/config-2.6.6 has the right items checked but file missing...

I installed from a backup onto Raven which is the parent of the others (w/ caveat no apt-get udate && apt-get upgrade in a while).

make-kpkg, same thing.

? What is the correct way to get new features or modules installed?
Should i delete the symlink kernel-source --> linux and start over?

Does make-kpkg kernel-image only deal with adding/removing modules/features that were initially checked at first installation?

Additional Info: made booboo and didnt install debianlogo patch or selective acpi patch in Raven but had /proc/net/wireless...went back to recheck, recompile, and reinstall...BAM!, no debianlogo or ability to enter acpi's dsdt table-->rechecked config in /boot and /usr/src/linux which indicated the config was fine...but still no dice.

Please Help! It used to work when I was flipflopping between ATAPI Floppy & SCSI emulation for my modular drive and jazip and a host of numberous other changes trying to whittle down at times and add features missing during others
