looks like your compiling the source as a different user then
yourself, you can't do that if you want to use X config.  

don't compile the kernel as root, its not necessary nor desirable.
(there is no reason to keep kernel source in /usr/src either, unless
you have  personal preference for it, in that case add yourself to
group src and untar the kernel source as you and not root)
