presumably they have different kernel version numbers (2.2.17-compact,
f.i.) so they'll just build into different packages right? although i
guess you need some kind of a "Provides" for the dependencies to work
out correctly.

there are a number of things that still cannot be built as modules, and
building all those things in (serial console, partition support, etc)
may still give us a kernel that is too big... i so wish we could somehow
get rid of flavors though.
