SubjectRe: [RFC] make localconfig
Hi,

I think this version is supposed to illustrate much better what I've had
in my mind.

localconfig(9) Generating local configuration localconfig(9)

NAME
localconfig - generate a .config for the local computer

SYNOPSIS
make localconfig
make dep ... etc... pp...

DESCRIPTION
Generate a .config for the local computer, so that the kernel
could be built right in that moment. Therefor the local
computer is being examined, probed and configured and all the
devices that we find go into your .config.

This is supposed to be a first step into a new direction where
we no longer copy vendor packages from the vendor CD to the
system in the first place, but rather compile new packages for
each system, hoping that somewhen the boxes will be fast
enough to handle it in no time. It's basically a binary
distribution -> source distribution transition.

AVAILABILITY
Linux 2.7+

SEE ALSO
make(1), kbuild(9)

scripts/localconfig.pl

BUGS
The version is probably never overly accurate, it might be a
good idea to manually recheck the .config (e.g. via make
menuconfig) in the first versions.
