The Debian packaging system needs some fixes to build 2.6.33.  See

I've used this to build the latest 2.6.33 gNewSense/mipsel kernels, but
beware: it would prevent 2.6.32 and earlier from building.  The second
hunk needs some tweaking to support both; just naming both files should
suffice if you don't mind the stderr noise that would ensue.
