If you are referring to the kernel .config, that name doesn't exist in 
mine, and 'CONFIG_AUDIT is not set' and wasn't.  But I just found a few 
more things turned on that are for hardware I don't have, or stuff I 
don't use, so it's rebuilding again.  Somehow or druther, even the board 
achitecture got changed, from PC to generic oddball, way down the list.  
Maybe I'll find some speed out of this thing yet. :-)
