Ew, it looks so FreeBSDy. I don't support this idea. Say, someone misconfigures
his kernel config file. He edits it over and over. It'd be wiser to make him
"config" it until he gets this right, then let him "make" the kernel, instead of
repeating the "kernel-build" all the time.

Just my humble opinion, I may well exagerate.
