This is from memory, but I believe you can do this:
cp .config config.jfd
make oldconfig config.jfd
make dep clean zImage modules modules_install
If not, look up the rule for oldconfig. You might have to rename
config.jfd to arch/i386/defconfig or something.
I can't remember.

not only do i point that out, but i mention that "make mrproper"
deletes *other* files that you need for subsequent builds, which
means that, after you do "make mrproper", you can't just restore
your .config and expect "make dep" to work.
