It would be a great help if the kernel src rpm's included
the .config file used to build the associated kernel rpm.

With the vastly increased options in the 2.2.x series,
having to go through every option to select sensible choices
can be a bit of a pain. Especially since the kernel doesn't
compile with the defaults (first Starbuck release). You
should really be able to re-create the kernel as supplied by
just following the usual build procedure.

I'm sure this would also reduce the problems newbies
experience when first recompiling the kernel.

kernel-2.2-alpha-BOOT.config
kernel-2.2-alpha-smp.config
From kernel-2.2.5-9.src.rpm:
kernel-2.2-alpha.config
kernel-2.2-i386-BOOT.config
kernel-2.2-i386-smp.config
kernel-2.2-i386.config
kernel-2.2-i586-smp.config
kernel-2.2-i586.config
kernel-2.2-i686-smp.config
kernel-2.2-i686.config
kernel-2.2-sparc-BOOT.config
kernel-2.2-sparc-smp.config
kernel-2.2-sparc.config
kernel-2.2-sparc64-BOOT.config
kernel-2.2-sparc64-smp.config
kernel-2.2-sparc64.config

Red Hat always builds with the "default" (i.e. the suggested answer)
configuration. That configuration is always part of every src rpm.

We also always build kernels by doing
	rpm --rebuild kernel*.src.rpm
