What is it with my trying to build a kernel that causes me so much grief?

Anyway, I am trying to upgrade from 2.0.36 to 2.2.5 then on to 2.2.7 (know I 
have had 2.2.5 running before so would like the step in the process).  After
going through make menuconfig, all seems correct.  However, upon starting
make-kpkg --revision=mahdi.1.0 kernel_image the trouble begins (again).

It goes through and does most of the compile, however exits in a bad way at the 
end.  Here is what it outputs:

make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot'
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/include -E -D__BIG_KERNEL__ -traditional 
-DSVGA_MODE=NORMAL_VGA  bootsect.S -o bbootsect.s
as86 -0 -a -o bbootsect.o bbootsect.s
make[2]: as86: Command not found
make[2]: *** [bbootsect.o] Error 127
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot'
make[1]: *** [bzImage] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux'
make: *** [build] Error 2

Once that happens, I am pretty much dead in the water, not knowing what/why it 
happens.  Any help will be appreciated, and I will continue to figure it out in 
the mean time.
