Hmm, from my linux/fs/

tristate 'UFS filesystem support (read only)' CONFIG_UFS_FS
if [ "$CONFIG_UFS_FS" != "n" ]; then
bool 'BSD disklabel (FreeBSD partition tables) support' CONFIG_BSD_DISKLABEL
bool 'SMD disklabel (Sun partition tables) support' CONFIG_SMD_DISKLABEL

So if you turn on UFS file system support it will also ask
you for BSD and SMD (==Sun) partition table support.
