RE: No compiling of benh10 kernel on my Wallstreet

	are you using the same config file as you benh9 kernel?  I don't
think the compiler is your problem, but, I am no expert.  since you are only
able to run 'make config' (you are very patient), make sure that you didn't
specify something like devfs by mistake.  maybe someone else w/ more
experience can be of more help. 
BTW, have you tried 'make xconfig'?
