I wanted to build a kernel to get some drivers as modules instead of built-in. I followed

When I went to build the kernel, I had to change the 'build' script to point to the toolchain. After that was fixed, I got this error when running the 'build' script.

# configuration written to .config

Anybody have any idea what might be wrong here?
