    Actually, I think the correct way to build a linux kernel for i386 on an
    amd64 [1] system is to use 'linux32 make deb-pkg' [2]. With that no
    changes to the kernel build system should be needed at all, and I think
    with that you even should not need to set the ARCH variable.

    It should also be possible to build a 64-bit kernel for i386 on amd64 that
    way using 'linux32 make ARCH=x86_64 deb-pkg'.

    Untested, but AFAIK that should work. Sorry for not mentioning it earlier,
    but it's a command I've never really used myself and I keep forgetting
    about it :-/


    [1] amd64 as in the Debian architecture, which also covers Intel 64-bit
    [2] linux32 is in until-linux package and thus guaranteed to be available
