If it were that simple to print the location, I had done it already. :)
Try this:

config FOO
select BAR
depends on BAR

config BAR

I looked into this before, for simple properties one could just remember
the last checked property via a static variable. The problem are the
selects which are checked before that loop, here the information from
where they were selected is not available anymore (at least not easily).
