How about something like the below (avoids writing a multi-MB temp file):

HDR=`binoffset $1 0x1f 0x8b 0x08 0x0`
dd if=$1 bs=1 skip=$HDR | zcat | strings /dev/stdin | grep CONFIG_

Note also that it is enough to store the config options without the
leading CONFIG_ part, and then use 'grep "[A-Z0-9]*=[ym]$"' to get
the actual config strings. You can add a final 'sed "s/^/CONFIG_/"'
step to return it to the original format. So:

dd if=$1 bs=1 skip=$HDR | zcat | strings /dev/stdin | grep "[A-Z0-9]=[ym]$" \
| sed "s/^//CONFIG_"
