I've just committed changes to /usr/sbn/config which allow for more
error checking of "options" statements in kernel config files. You
should rebuild and reinstall config before trying to configure and
build a -current kernel.
The only user-visible change is that config will warn when you define
kernel options which haven't (yet) translated to a defopt -- mostly
COMPAT_*, networking options, and (on some ports) CPU-level options.
The warnings are harmless, but it gives a chance to catch mis-spelled
These changes also add machinery for additional error checking, but
which isn't used in (/sys/arch/conf/files.*, sys/dev/*/files.*). Yet.
Remember to rebuild and install config(8) soon!
