| Definately agreed. Not all users want/can go and grep the source

xconfig already has a way to do this. Set all Options (5 of them,
although fewer would probably work). menuconfig doesn't do this.

What would be even more helpful would be a way to tell *config to
jump from <current location, where a symbol is used> to
<where a symbol is defined>.
