     Are we (or you (generic you)) treating this kind of config error as a bug
     these days?
     If so, there are a gazillion ways it is possible to build a NetBSD
     kernel config file that config's without errors, but then generates
     either compilation errors, or more commonly as here, link errors, when
     the result is used to attempt to build a kernel.
     I'd always put this kind of thing down to operator error - just use a
     correct config file, and it all works.  I'd prefer it if all the 
     could be automatic, but they never have been in the past.
 this is true.
 we'd like to make as many combos work and this one looks to be a
 little invasive to fix properly, and possibly largely useless.
 the radeon PCIE support depends upon the agp support, so turning
 it off may not be a useful thing for any modern system.
