combining "make O=" and "oldconfig" when configuring a kernel?

  embarrassed to admit i'm not sure of the proper answer to this, but
what is the proper way to combine the features of "make O=" and
configuring with "oldconfig" and an existing .config file?

  it *appears* that what i would do with a pristine kernel source tree
is something like:

  $ mkdir ../build		[create a build directory]
  $ cp <some config file> ../build/.config
  $ make O=../build oldconfig

and take it from there.  does that sound right?
