Editting the .config file by hand is a sort of iffy business.  What
many of us do that compile a lot of various kernels is keep our most
recent .config file and drop it into the new kernels root directory
after running make mrproper and checking out speakup if you are using
it.  Once you've dropped the .config in the directory you run make
oldconfig which will only ask you questions that have been added to
linux since the previously built kernel.  Once that is done it is a
trivial matter to then run make menuconfig and go modify specific
configuration options.
