I can't speak for xconfig but menuconfig defaults to using Hannu's Linux
compatible configuration. If you'll notice, menuconfig give you the
option to run the old sound configure program from within its sound
config menu.

Yes, in a sense. Menuconfig does a 'make mkscript' in the sound driver
directory, which is intended to be sort of permanent. You can put the old
Makefile back:

cd /usr/src/linux/drivers/sound
cp Config.std Config.in

I think this has been a lingering problem with xconfig for a while now.
I'm not sure what causes it, sorry.

I be looking at that on Sunday. I'll see what I can do.
