Well, I've thought about another viewpoint. The Makefile insists on the detail that no
configuration files are allowed in the source directory if an output directory was specified.
Original wording:
"...
# prepare3 is used to check if we are building in a separate output directory,
# and if so do:
# 1) Check that make has not been executed in the kernel src $(srctree)
..."

I seems now that my troubles came from the missing decision when to move or delete the
.config file from my source directory. So the following command sequence works for a
completely clean build. (It can be adjusted to support parallel configurations for
debug/release situations as usual.)

-p /boot/config-2.6.23.1-0-adjusted .config && export
