Good thinking...

yes "" | make oldconfig

would solve the problem too, although lately there have been some 
non-backwards-compatible config changes and even just taking the default 
answers wouldn't produce a usable kernel. The README file should still 
be updated, but using the yes command will avoid the problem for a lot 
of people.
