Yes, but in this case 'MAC' means m68k mac, which this _might_ be valid, but
I never did get Linux up and running on the m68ks I had..

But Alan's point is a good one. There are _lots_ of cases you can't get away
with things like this, unless you get very fine grained. In fact, it would
be much eaiser to do this seperately from the kernel. Ie another,
possibly/probably _not_ inkernel config tool which asks what machine you
have, picks lots of sane defaults and setups a kernel config for you. This
is _sort of_ what PPC does right now with the large number of 'default
configs' (arch/ppc/configs).
