Without it, folk will then do (and this is taken from someone elses
example):

cd /usr/src
tar -xjf /path/to/linux-2.6.x.tar.bz
cd linux-2.6.x
mkdir -p _build/arm
cd _build/arm
cat >GNUmakefile <<EOF
VERSION = 2
PATCHLEVEL = 6

KERNELSRC := /usr/src/linux-2.6.x
KERNELOUTPUT := /usr/src/linux-2.6.x/_build/arm

MAKEFLAGS += --no-print-directory

ARCH = arm
#CROSS_COMPILE = arm-unknown-linux-gnu-
CROSS_COMPILE = arm-linux-

all:
$(MAKE) ARCH=$(ARCH) CROSS_COMPILE=$(CROSS_COMPILE) -C $(KERNELSRC) O=$(KERNELOUTPUT)

%::
$(MAKE) ARCH=$(ARCH) CROSS_COMPILE=$(CROSS_COMPILE) -C $(KERNELSRC) O=$(KERNELOUTPUT) $@
EOF
make xconfig
make

which I think you'll agree is far worse.
