Thank you (and thanks also to the other folks who responded in 
private e-mail). It also has a second advantage: besides disabling 
generation of the .ko files, it also suppresses compilation of 
drivers that are not going to be linked statically into the kernel. 
Build on an older Pentium II server took about 10-12% of the time! 
Worth knowing about.
