I had this problem too.

To solve it, I booted from the LFS Live CD, mounted my main root 
partition and copied /proc/config.gz to /mnt/lfs/root.

I then rebooted my LFS, gunzipped the config, went to my kernel tree, 
started up the config and used the option to load a kernel config file :).

Then I just went about removing what I didn't want, not touching 
anything to do with the framebuffer :)

Hope this helps :)

Dave
