me too. I've used it that way since 1.6 and it always gave a good
starting for a custom configuration! It's not broken in terms of
'unusable' it's just not perfect.
The list of things it doesn't found was/is fairly small and since
theese are added at the end of the config it is easy to fix them. 

To me adjustkernel is a tool to get a start for my custom config, so
I've never expected a working kernel config from it. It's sad that it
got removed because it's not perfect enough for some people. 

p.s. I'd fix it but i don't know perl
