Alternatively, you could use make menuconfig or make xconfig,. I know
for sure that you can store your configuration to a file with xconfig, and
load it up as well. I generally keep mine in the root home directory and load
it up from there.

I do that, because when I DL the source tree, I tend to remove the
previous tree before unpacking the new kernel. That way ensures me that there
aren't any stale dependencies lying around..

If you want to use xconfig, last I remembered, you'll need the tcl/tk
software installed.. but give it a go.. you'll like it.
