Subject2.4.5-pre1 build issue w/ potential patch and menuconfig glitch
I hope this isn't a duplicate, but I haven't seen these issues raised 
yet on the list.

I wasn't able to choose processor types in menuconfig without the patch
appended below. xconfig seemed happy with the parentheses. I wasn't
sure how to properly escape parens (if possible) so please consider this
my own speculative hack.

Also, I don't seem to be able to backspace in numeric fields in
menuconfig when using xterm emulation and a terminal app that sends ^H
(and yes, "stty erase ^H"). I don't think this started with 2.4.5-pre1,
but before I assumed it was my terminal flaking out. Switching to
$term=="vt100" or switching to DEL instead of ^H in the terminal app
fixes the problem. It's easy to reproduce by running Gnome terminal on
a default RH6.2 system.

Thanks much, please contact me if you have any Qs.
