[PATCH 2.5] kbuild error for mips (and possibly others)

Original-recipient: rfc822;
        there is a very annoying error in the 2.5 kbuild process
where the generation of the elfconfig.h file depends on the proper
configuration of the kernel being available (for mips at least) 
but configuring the kernel disallows the inclusion of the .config file
and thus the configuration and specifically CROSS_COMPILE is not set. 
This causes empty.o to fail to build because CC is now gcc and not 
mips(el)-linux-gcc and the -G option to gcc is invalid for my cross

This patch fixes the problem. It also makes the *config targets 
not dependant on having the helper programs in scripts/ compiled
which they shouldn't be. They are not necessary.
