    I believe--and I'm sure others will correct me on this if I'm wrong,
    that there is a file /boot/config-<kernel-version> that you 
    can copy into your linux source code tree as .config, then run a 
    make menu-config to make any modifications necessary. 

    Then make dep; make etc. 

Share and Enjoy.
