You should be able to build modules just by typing 'make', and it'll find 
the build tree for your kernel in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build. You can 
override that with LINUXDIR= and also ARCH= and CROSS_COMPILE= as normal 
with a kernel build.

If you want to build stuff into your kernel, copy or symlink the contents 
of the drivers/mtd and include/linux/mtd directories into your kernel tree.

I usually just use symlinks into the checked out MTD tree, 
so I can continue to cvs update it easily, etc.

There's a '' script which does some of this, I think. I've never 
paid much attention to it.
