I already have a patch from Ghozlane Toumi in my inbox that supports:

make randconfig
answers randomly to the questions .

make allyes
answers 'yes' to all questions .

make allno
answers 'no' to all questions .

make allmod
answer 'm' if avaiable, 'yes' else .

Plus you can specify defaults in .force_default which will always be
honoured. I have been using it to stress test the 2.4.4 configs and my
2.5 makefile rewrite, it works very nicely.
