sorry, right you are...the release is 4.7. i felt that cvsup was
unnecessary, since all that i had done was install from cd.

anyway, i learned that commenting anything from kernel config is
apparently a precipitous affair. uncommenting everything back provided the
juice to finish the make.

i have yet to figure what has gone wrong on the original box, but i do
suspect it to be a hardware issue. i will report....

thanks everyone for all the assistance!
