Yes, it is your favourite distro, whichever that may be. You just
need the tools to build, which you may already have, but can be seen
in docs:

If you want a GUI, use `make xconfig`.

Have your custom config options in a separate file somewhere, and use
scripts/kconfig/ to merge. Example in a script:

        make defconfig
        ./scripts/kconfig/ .config common.config

The script will take care of requisite stuff, which additional options
to enable, etc.

Or you can have your entire config saved in .config, and just run everytime you pull newer kernel code.
