No, this seems to have been broken when the kernel was upgraded to
2.6.18 (i.e. frickin' ages ago!). It seems that "make oldconfig" doesn't
create include/linux/autoconf.h anymore and that "make silentoldconfig"
is required instead. We use include/linux/autoconfig.h as the makefile
stamp to indicate whether to write an initial configuration or not.

Can you try
