We don't use "old" (4.2) config; we use "new" (Torek) config. The syntax
is quite different and as we're the only major user of it, our new-config
has evolved so that it's very different from what was in 4.4BSD. The
documentation in the SMM is for old-config.
Consequently, there is no comprehensive documentation for our config. I
know of at least two people who have started to write some, but both gave
config(9) and autoconf(9) seem to do a pretty good job these days!
