That's correct.  Just make sure you have this in your XF86Config:

Section "Module"
        Load    "extmod"

It has nothing to do with the kernel config -- it's an extension to the
X protocol.  The respective module/lib implementing the SHAPE extension
(and various others) comes with the X-server


BTW, with "xdpyinfo" you can check which extensions your X-server
supports.  See the list following "number of extensions:".
